"Reserve" Blocks 2 and 3 in Auschwitz I And Wooden Barracks at the Auschwitz II-Birkenau Camp for Study Visits

Study tour groups may visit Block 2 and 3 of the former Auschwitz I camp and wooden hospital barracks (B-80 and B-210) at the Auschwitz II-Birkenau camp. Block 2 and 3 are ones of so-called "reserve blocks" of the Museum, maintained and presented in their original condition. Since the liberation of the camp, the interior of the blocks has been preserved almost intact. It comprises rooms for prisoners, a washroom, toilets and other areas, furnished with original strawbeds, bunks and other elements of block furnishing.  

Buildings are made available to study tour groups (maximum 20 people) visiting the Memorial Site upon prior notice. 

Conservation of Blocks 2 and 3 of the former Auschwitz I camp and wooden barracks was made possible thanks to the co-financing from the European Regional Development Fund under the Infrastructure and Environment Operational Programme for the years 2007-2013.
