    Smoky and "weird guests"

    The hostel itself was ok. The people were nice but the whole place smelled like cigarette smoke. It was explained that in a week the anti-smoking law would go into effect so everyone was going overboard with their smoking, but I don't know.

    Also, I was staying in one of the dorm rooms and I woke up to find a guy touching my forehead. After I sat up and started talking angrily at him, he left the room, and then I went to reception and explained the situation and all she could say to me was "Sometimes we have weird guests." There was no offer to help find the creek that came into the room so that it wouldn't happen again or so it wouldn't happen to someone else. I feel that other hostels would have done more in that situation.

    ... this, it is still easy to make out the layout of what once stood there.

    The cold, remorseless and efficient way in which this place functioned is truly terrifying, even after nearly 70 years have passed since the camp ceased operation. Another building further along was where the prisoners selected for work were processed. They were brought in and made to strip naked. Their clothes were then cleaned and sanitized for later use by German citizens. The ...

While we waited we got a wurst for a snack, looked at the souvineer shops and went to the bathroom where there was a dog wandering around (we named him toilet dog). Finally it was 5pm and our turn for ...

    ... the day before, it was so interesting to learn about the actual infiltration and occupation that took over Krakow during the war. The museum looked at all aspects of the occupation, with fantastic images and videos, and it was captivating to learn more about the people of Krakow and how their lives were affected before, during and after the occupation. It was humbling to walk into Oskar Schindler’s office, with heaps of the pots and enamel items ...
