Visiting Auschwitz-Birkenau as a family: What you should know

September 18, 2023
Hey, my name is Marissa and I am the wife and mom in this group. Some of my favorite things are Downton Abbey, black coffee, any Beth Moore study, and the color purple. I’ve currently been to 5 continents, and one place I’ll always travel back to is London, England.

The former Nazi Concentration and Extermination camp is a very well known location in Poland. And while it is a very overwhelming place to visit, we felt it was a very important place to go as a family to help our kids learn lessons from this painful part of history.

But, this is a choice that each family needs to make based on their kids and family make up.

If you are curious about what visiting this hallowed ground  with kids was like for us, and you want some ideas and input into what you can do to prepare your family for this experience, I will do my best to approach this topic with as much sensitivity as this location is entitled to.


This is the guide that we used for our visit to the camp.
