Is the Auschwitz III camp (Monowitz) now open to visitors

Filed under: Holocaust — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 10:44 am

This morning, I read a news article here which included this quote:

Over 200 Educators Visit Auschwitz, Gaining Valuable Experience
Visitors on this trip visited the entire camp, which consists of three separate sections: Auschwitz I, Auschwitz II which is also known as Birkenau, and Auschwitz III the labor camp.

Did this tour group really visit the Monowitz camp? I thought that the Auschwitz III camp [Monowitz] was off limits because the factories there are still being used.

The Monowitz sub-camp of Auschwitz was known as Bunalager (Buna Camp) until November 1943 when it became the KL Auschwitz III camp with its own administrative headquarters.

Auschwitz III consisted of 28 sub-camps which were built between 1942 and 1944. This area of Upper Silesia was known as the “Black Triangle” because of its coal deposits.

The Buna plant attracted the attention of the Allies, and there were several bombing raids on the factories.

On my two trips to Auschwitz, in 1998 and 2005, I tried my best to take a tour of the Monowitz (Auschwitz III) camp. I was told that the Monowitz camp was off limits because the factories are still being used.

Finally, I bribed a nice Polish guide to take me close to the Monowitz camp, so that I could get some photographs. I took some photos NEAR the camp, but my guide would not let me get close enough to take a photo of the buildings inside the former Monowitz camp.

A reader of my website sent me a photo several years ago, which he said that he had taken just outside the Monowitz camp.

KL Auschwitz III, also known as Monowitz, was very important to the Nazis because of its factories, which were essential to the German war effort.

The Monowitz industrial complex was built by Auschwitz inmates, beginning in April 1941. Initially, the workers walked from the Auschwitz main camp to the building site, a distance of 4 to 6 kilometers each way. By 1942, barracks had been built for the prisoners at Monowitz.

The Jews, who were sent to Auschwitz and then assigned to work at Monowitz, had a much better chance of survival because the factory workers were considered too valuable to send to the gas chambers, at least while they were still able to work.

Two famous survivors who worked at Monowitz were Elie Wiesel and Primo Levi, both of whom wrote extensively about the Holocaust. [It is questionable whether Elie Wiesel was ever at any of the Auschwitz camps.]

The photo above shows the ruins of a bomb shelter which the Nazis built near the Monowitz factories. The barracks where the prisoners lived at Monowitz have all been torn down and replaced by houses. The people on the left in the photo above are Polish residents, not tourists. Note the street sign on the left; this building is on an ordinary city street in the town of Monowitz.

The factories at Monowitz were built by the IG Farben company, which was attempting to produce synthetic rubber, called Buna. The Polish village of Monowice, which was renamed Monowitz by the Germans, is 4 kilometers from the site of the factories, which were located on the east side of Oswiecim.

Some of the old factory buildings are still standing, although now abandoned, while others are still in use as factories. The concrete wall around the factories, with its distinctive curved posts, can still be seen along the road from Oswiecim to the Krakow airport.

In the photo at the top of my blog post, you can see part of the solid concrete fence that surrounds the ruins of the factories, which are still in existence today.

When you enter the town of Oswiecim, coming from the Krakow airport, the fence is the first thing that you see. This tells you that the area around this town, formerly known as Auschwitz, was once the home of Nazi forced labor camps, where the Jews worked as slave laborers.

The fence stretches for miles and behind it are factories, built by the Germans, that are still being used today. The factories and the ruins are off limits to visitors; the tour groups do not visit the ruins, and the private tour guides refuse to take visitors there.

The following quote is also from  the article:  “The Educational Trust was the foundation who invited the educators to Poland.”

Did the teachers on the trip really see the Monowitz camp or was this a mistake made by the person who wrote the news article?

  1. Interesting FG, I note that the article claims they visited the whole facility, a bit like the tours of Dimona for IAEA in 1962, no? Anyway whilst the uselesscrew arrange for tours of commoncore graduate educators(ignorantors) the children of that area are groomed by street criminals. So we get the absurd, as usual, spectre of educators telling their pupils rubbish history whilst those children are abused on the street under the watch of those same of anti racist, diversity educators.

    I also note that the article states the Soviets liberated. Ahh more Trotskyist rubbish. The Murder Army liberated no one, except of life.

    I also note the assertion of names and places which as always with these Trotskyists change constantly. Karl Marx Stadt anyone? I also note that the factories are still functioning. What? Is that today?

    Anyway the crux of the matter here is that having wandered all over these R&D faciliteis the Holohoax is used to hide, in clear sight, jewish corporate contractors, chemists, engineers, MDs, working very happily thankyou very much, on weapons of mass destruction within these corporate entities. The false history is also used to disguise the fact that all these corporate employees were to be lifted out to Palestine to continue their work there.

    What was the Jewish equivalent of ODESSA?

    You’ve been there. What say you?

    • Glad you commented here. I asked earlier on here why it was “educators” instead of government officials or local neighborhood people. I was guessing it was educators so the jews could tell them,” okay. This is the version you’re gonna teach your students”. All of them will kiss the jew ass and teach the jew version of the history,so all the school kids can be brainwashed

  2. When I visited Auschwitz last month, I had originally planned to make a full day of it, and visit all three of the camps. Unfortunately, due to time constraints caused by my travelling companions, I did not manage to make it to Monowitz. That was too bad. The next time I return to Kraków I plan to spend much more time in Oświęcim, to fill in the blanks I missed, and retread some of the same ground once again, with eyes wider open.

  3. Here’s the part that bothers me. The reporter wrote,”Over 200 educators”. I’m gonna deduce they’re teachers. Perfect for the jews. Invite the “educators” and give them “history” of the holocaust,that’s their version. It had to be educators. Why not government officials or everyday people. How about vets from WW2? Boatload of other people they could’ve invited,but they didn’t

    • If they handed the sites over to the world’s boat people that would be interesting. In fact the money spent on their shit art works and dumborials would keep all the world’s boat persons in vitals for decades.

      • Okay. Remember I’m here to learn about this shit. With that being said,what are boat people? The only boat people that come to mind,are the trash that Castro dumped on America in the early part of 1980. Yeah some of them were folks wanting a better life. For the most part all the Mariel Boat people were Castros trash. Early 80’s in south Florida was the “O K Corral “. I was at a bar on the beach one night.”bang,bang,bang!” Two Cubans went at it right in the middle of the street. The reason? Drugs. That’s one time i would’ve welcomed Uncle Adolph with open arms. I’m about 99% sure he would’ve sent the “street sweepers” out in full force to clean up the trash Castro dumped on us. Wether someone hates or likes Hitler,I’m pretty sure they’d agree the Cuban trash problem would be under control when he finished. He may not have been perfect,but I’m pretty sure he would’ve dealt with the Cuban trash so our children could play without fear of getting caught in the middle of a drug dealer war between Cubans . Like we used to say back in Florida. “KFC”( nope. That don’t stand for Kentucky Fried Chicken). Kill F**kin Cubans,KFC. At any rate my dumb ass got off topic. What are the boat people you refered to? Thanks
