English guided tours at Majdanek

English guided tours at Majdanek

Majdanek operated between the 1st October 1941 and the 22nd July 1944. Approx, 80,000 prisoners were killed there by the Nazis. Around 60,000 of them were Jewish. We provide English Guided Tours at Majdanek.

The aim of our Majdanek Tour in English is to give you an understanding of the history of this former Nazi concentration camp. During a 3-hour-tour, the still existing site of the former camp will be covered. Warehouses, barracks, the gas chamber and crematorium can be entered. The brutality of the crimes committed at the side of Majdanek is overwhelming. Still, we like to share facts about the daily operation of the camp, its inmates, their causes of death, Aktion Erntefest and Majdanek in its context with Lublin and the former extermination camps in the surrounding area.

Hi! My name’s Martin, I’m a Dutchman, married to a lady from Lublin. We live here with our 3 kids. I’m passionate about the history of Lublin, especially the less known and funny stories of this inspirational city. I absolutely don’t like telling the standard boring stories. My ambition is to become a Polish lad but I’ve failed so far! I’m not good at drinking vodka and I refuse to eat pierogi.

I’ve lived and worked in many countries, amongst others in Israel and Morocco, and beside that, I’ve travelled a lot. I tend to join a free tour in every place I visit. To the best of my knowledge, I‘ve introduced the concept of regular based Free Walking Tours to Lublin.

Because I’m a foreigner, I’m able to highlight aspects of life in Lublin which are uncommon in other cultures. An ordinary situation for a native can intrigue me and a new inspirational story is born.

I’m proud of the city I live and work in. Book a tour with me and I’ll be happy to share my knowledge with you!
