I didn't know where our tour group was going the morning we arrived at Majdanek Death Camp. When we approached the huge stone carving I noticed a pit below it and the tour guide said that "yes, it symbolizes the thousands that died and were burried in the pits". It just so happened that we were there on all Saints... More

For me, definitely one of the best concentration camps I've been too, for sure ahead of Auschwitz. It is free to enter and you don't have thr possibility of getting a guided tour, but I can guarantee you won't need it. You can get a free map of the camp from the visitors' center and then, as you walk through... More

Majdanek is one of the best preserved concentration camps left from WWII. This is the first one I've ever been to, and it is an experience I will not forget. You can read all you want about the atrocities committed by the Nazis during WWII, but nothing compares to seeing where it actually went down. Our guide was very friendly... More

Majdanek is a must see when in the area. You could go to other similar places but this camp will sure make an inpression on you for life! You can learn about its activities in the second world war. It is exactly as it was and there is a museum where there is lots to read and learn. You will... More

Majdanek death camp surely deserves a visit although it is not popular as other sites such as Auschwitz-Birkenau. The camp is well preserved and contains gas chambers and a crematorium (partially reconstructed). Printed guides available at the visitor's centre are useful for the visit, though there is plenty of signs and explanations along the route. Admission is free but you... More

Took a day out of our week in Poland to drive over to Lublin and see Majdenek. The monument at the entrance is in need of maintenance (Beware of tripping over loose kerbs + paving) The visitor building is modern + the staff are helpful. It is a quite large site + very open. Exhibitions are housed in some of... More

Rented a car from Warsaw and took a day trip there. Gas stations along the way. Somewhat difficult to get out of Warsaw but afterward easy to navigate roads. Chose this "camp" because original buildings still standing and near Lublin town where there are lots of restaurants and things to do afterward. There are original barracks and inside you see...

Was very impressed by this place. It is recommendable to prepare yourself by reading the literature about nazi death camps before the visit.it is the Must for everybody, who visits Lublin. Your need about two hours for visiting the camp.

Visited here as part of Holocaust tour, we had a Polish guide who was very informative. It is important to keep these monuments open for all who wish to visit, learn more about man's inhumanity to man and pay our respects.
