The museum is a shocking memorial site and an evidence of the cruelty of Nazi criminals. Here, in Oświęcim, and in the nearby Brzezinka, a huge concentration camp, and an extermination camp, was founded. Presently it is inscribed on the UNESCO list as “Auschwitz-Birkenau. German Nazi Concentration and Extermination Camp (1940-1945)”. It consists of two camps. The older and smaller concentration camp in Oświęcim (Auschwitz) is entered through a metal gate with the Arbeit macht frei motto. The brick prisoners’ barracks house museum exhibitions devoted to the victims of various nationalities. Next to block 11 is the Death Wall, a place of executions carried out on the prisoners. The second, larger camp was founded by the Nazi occupying forces in 1941 in Brzezinka (Birkenau), around 3 km from the Auschwitz camp. What remained to this day out of this enormous concentration camp are a few wooden barracks, a tower gate, long barbed wire entanglements, as well as a ramp by the railway track, where the selection of victims (most of whom were immediately sent to death in gas chambers) took place. Until 1945 around 1.5 million people were murdered here, mainly Jewish, but also Polish, Roma, Russian and of 28 other nationalities.

Tradycyjne rzemiosło
On 24th-25th August 2019, the Stary Sącz Craft Fair will take place for the 11th time on the Market Square in Stary Sącz!

For centuries, Stary Sącz was an important point on the merchant route connecting Hungary and Poland. In addition, this town was known as a strong craft centre. All former traditions are currently revisited at the Stary Sącz Craft Fair.

The program is full of attractions – at 11:00 a.m., a fair of regional products and a presentation of handicrafts will start. There will also be an opportunity to taste regional dishes from Poland, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia.

During the Fair, a number of brilliant regional ensembles will perform on stage, including the Spod Prehyby Children’s Regional Ensemble or the Starosądeczanie Regional Ensemble. The stars of the evening will be Liber & InoRos on Saturday and the Góralsi Ensemble on Sunday.

Further information can be found on the website.
