Full description
Stutthof concentration camp was the first concentration camp in the territory of Poland and as such, was in operation for the longest period of time. It had been established in order to exterminate Jewish and Polish Intelligence, mainly from the Pomerania and the Free City of Gdansk. Built in 1939 and initially intended for approximately 3,000 people, this camp gradually became the place of torment and slaughter for over 110 thousand prisoners from  26 countries, most of whom were tortured, forced to work, or died in gas chambers. The Stutthof concentration camp is currently open for visitors. Since the exposition is quite drastic, it may be visited only by persons who are aged 13 or over. The trip lasts 5 hours and the tour includes the entrance ticket to the museum as well as a guided visit to the former Stutthof area – the old and new camp quarters, the main commander’s villa, gas chambers, crematorium, and the monument to its victims. Additionally, it is also possible to watch a film about the camp.

      Vel verdt pengene - anbefales.

      Vi var to voksne og to ungdommer på tur til Stutthof. Turen ville på langt nær vært den samme uten vår engelsktalende guide, som vi var svært fornøyd med! Vi fikk høre mange sterke og interessante historier, mye mer enn det som er forklart på informasjonsplakatene i leiren. I tillegg fortalte guiden mye om Gdansk og Polen sin historie underveis, som gav oss ett nytt perspektiv når vi senere travet rundt som turister i gamlebyen. Vi besøkte både museum for 2.verdenskrig (uten guide) og Stutthof. Ville ikke unnvært noen av dem.
