Majdanek Nazi camp
On the outskirts of Lublin there is a historical place of nazi concentration and extermination camp – Majdanek. It is a unique example of camp located near population center. The camp was going to be the source of a free workforce for the realization of the plans to build a German empire in the east. Prisoners came from nearly 30 countries, mainly Poles and Jews, but also Russians, Belorusians, Ukrainians and others. The tragic history of the Lublin concentration camp came to an end on 23rd July 1944 after the Red Army entered the city. Now you can visit Majdanek National Museum, Monument of Struggle and Martyrdom at Majdanek, Mausoleum containing ashes from the victims of Nazi hate and some remains of the camp.
