The moment the German Nazis invaded Poland, massive arrests of Poles in the Free City of Danzig started. Only in the first day of the war approx. 1500 people were arrested and put in Stutthof Concentration Camp
Stutthof was the place where 110 000 people were kept: men, women and children, citizens of 28 countries and over 30 nationalities.
Among them were also Poles, Jews, Russians, Ukrainians, White Russians, Lithuanians, Latvians, Estonians, Czechs, Slovaks, Finns, Norwegians, French, Danes, Dutch, Belgs, Germans, Austrians, English, Spanish, Italians, Yugoslavs, Hungarians and Gypsies.
During the imprisonment they were exposed to a number of exterminating factors such as slave-like work, malnutrition, terrible sanitation, disease, mental and physical torture. 65 000 people died as a result of exterminating living conditions as well as of executions by shooting, hanging, murdering in gas chambers by means of Cyclone B, killing by means of phenol injections into the heart, beating and torturing, and during evacuation by land and by sea.
History that cannot be forgotten…
Our English speaking driver will pick you up from your hotel in comfortable Mini Bus with AC and take you to Sztutowo where former camp and now Stutthof Museum is located.
In the museum you will visit for about 2 hours with English speaking Museum’s guide.
You can visit former concentration camp in Sztutowo during your stay in Gdansk, as it is located around 60 km from Gdansk. It will be more comfortable and less expensive to take an organized tour rather than use a bus or private tour from Gdansk to Stutthof Museum.
GdanskShuttle offers a door-to-door service so you won’t need to search for Gdansk- Sztutowo Bus at the Bus Station and then look for a way to get to Stutthoff museum. You will be picked up directly from your hotel.
English-speaking guide in Stutthof Museum is included to the tour — you won’t need to buy any tickets on your own or hire private guide.
Finally, our Stutthof Tour includes also English-speaking driver assistance so you won’t need to worry about anything.
