Discussion in 'The Holocaust' started by Maksym Chornyi, Apr 7, 2019.


    My new material from the Poland-2018 trip took me almost a month of researching, writing, editing. I have visited the Auschwitz memorial site and want to share with you ‘beyond-the-fence’ walking experience along the locations of the historical significance, generally poor known among the visitors. With great respect, I hope this article can widen your understanding of the place, motivate for mindful history and to make your own travel.

    I would be greatly appreciated for your feedback (comments, questions, suggestions) as it energizes me to work and share new materials with you. Travel your own history.

    As I just said elsewhere, having not realised it was on here too: really interesting stuff.
    The embedded map is great. Really nice to see how smoothly that works now, opening straight into the ubiquitous Google Maps on my phone with directions ready to go.

    Haven't been myself, but suspect you're onto something very positive with such round & about guides to sites.
  3. Thank you for your positive feedback. I have always considered writing as my passion and now my blog as a mean to do it and share with the others. I would once make an interactive map on the main page with the articles within a World map. All in one place

    Another good effort. I do like your efforts and look forward to reading them.
    When I visited Auschwitz a couple of years ago I completely forgot to visit the sites of the Red & White cottages but did manage to see the Tobacco Factory near the main camp, Aussenlager Jawischowitz and the greenhouses at Aussenlager Raisko. There are so many related sites within a stones throw (or almost a stones throw) of Auschwitz I, II & III that I expect you could write numerous blogs and not be able to cover them all.
  5. You made the point and I try to fill this gap between the general tourist routes on one hand and the enormous volume of not so obvious information about Auschwitz on the other. I would share my next article called 'Sites beyond Auschwitz-1' within the next two weeks. You can find FB follow button inside any article not to miss. Would appreciate your feedback. I've covered all four Tobacco buildings among the other sites.
