For visitors

In 2023. The KL Plaszow Museum carried out a commemoration in the area of the KL Plaszow Memorial Site. As part of the work, the boundaries of two Jewish cemeteries were marked, the historic camp roads were made clear, and the roll call square was surrounded by a gravel strip. Access to the higher areas is provided by three flights of field stairs. At the seven main entrances to the KL Plaszow memorial site, there are boards with regulations specifying the rules applicable on the museum grounds.

The exhibition “KL Plaszow. A Site After, A Site Without” along with complementary field points and archaeological windows provide visitors with a historical commentary. There are also seven monuments at the memorial site that are part of the commemoration of KL Plaszow.
