The guided tour begins at the Visitor Centre opposite the car park. The first stops on the tour are the road below the camp wall, the top of the quarry and the memorial park on the site of the former SS camp. The tour then continues inside the former prisoner camp. This route enables visitors to understand the route taken by the prisoners, to engage critically with the perspectives of the perpetrators, and to reflect on how the concentration camp was viewed by the wider population during the Nazi era. Confronting the perspectives of victims, perpetrators and local people is an essential feature of the tour.
The guides are all specially trained educators. Our education training places great emphasis on encouraging interaction and openness among visitors. This results in tours that offer a balance of historical information and group discussion about what that history means.
