      Alles prima geregeld, wij verwachten een bus vol met toeristen maar werden opgehaald door een vriendelijke man in een personenwagen die ons al vertellend over Polen naar Auschwitz bracht. Ter plekke alles perfect geregeld zonder wachttijden, en weer netjes teruggebracht bij het hotel. Super! Auschwitz zelf is een triest bezoek natuurlijk maar enorme indruk achtergelaten.
