Weekend with history
On August 17 and 18, the State Museum at Majdanek organizes another edition of “Weekend with history”
As part of this year's edition, on August 17, we encourage you to participate in two rounds of free guided tours. Following the "Trail of Lost Places", the participants will not only get acquainted with the general outline of the history of the German Nazi concentration camp at Majdanek, but will also discover the post- German history of the grounds of the former camp. The guides will explain why only a part of the camp objects survived. Visitors will be able to learn about barracks, workshops, magazines and quarters that do not exist today from the accounts of prisoners, witnesses and perpetrators, and see archival photographs from the collections of the Museum.
The tour will take place on August 17 in two rounds: at 10.00 and 11.00.
On August 18, we will present the post-war fate of Majdanek related to the formation of the NKVD camp on prisoner field III. The audience will be shown around the mini exhibition "Soviet NKVD filter camp at Majdanek". It will be open only for one hour in barracks No. 1 on field III, inaccessible to visitors every day, in which officers of the Home Army were imprisoned. On August 23, 1944, they were transported to the Dyagilevo camp near Ryazan. The exhibition will present documents about the Home Army soldiers, officers, NCOs and privates detained here, including their fate after being interned in Russia. A complement to the history of the NKVD camp will be the issue of the Fahrbereitschaft commando, which was stationed in barracks Nos. 1 and 2 on field III.
The lecture combined with the tour around the exhibition will take place on August 18 at 11.00 in barracks No. 1 on field III.
