Plaszow Camp Private Tour

The Plaszow concentration camp was supposed to be a replacement for the Krakow ghetto. Established in 1942, it was first designed as 15 ha camp for 4,000-5,000 inmates. Over the first few years it grew to 80 ha and it is estimated that there were 30,000- 40,000 prisoners. The camp was located in the Krzemionki district close to the ghetto, railway station, industrial plants and quarries. Płaszow had numerous workshops and used its prisoners as cheap labour force and had a cemetery for those who didn’t survive. The camp was completely destroyed during the war with only some remains of infrastructure.
