It is above all a place of remembrance whose visit is important in order to realize what man is capable of and how far the different forms of racism can lead. So just a few tips: If you go on your own, you must have booked your visit on the Museum's website and this a few weeks in advance (visit without a free guide, but reservation required). Only small bags are allowed, but there is a deposit for bags exceeding the limit. To go on your own, I advise the buses of the company "Lajkonik" which depart from the bus station which is located just next to the railway station of Krakow and which deposit you right in front of the entrance of the Museum (15 zlotys per way).
Was A Very Nice Looking Place, Wish I Was There To Experience It
This was the worst summer camp ive ever been to. For some reason they always got us up at 6 AM just to go to work at the near farm, The camp counselors wore weird dark green and black uniforms with red and white armbands with some weird looking symbol, they also held MP-40s and Kar98ks, very uncomfortable because they watched us work in the fields and watched us sleep while holding their rifles. Sometimes the counselors would select some few of us to go take a shower, smh my friend anne frank was taken and she never came back.
