Let us take you on an adventure along the track of the biggest secrets of the Second World War in Lower Silesia. See Osowka, which is part of Project Riese, Ksiaz Castle, Gross-Rosen concentration camp and the labyrinth-shaped exhibition in Krzyzowa.

Krzyżowa – a former estate of Helmuth James von Moltke, where Kreisau Circle, one of the most famous resistance movements against the politics of the Third Reich was established. You will learn about the history of the crimes against the Polish people committed during the Second World War as well as the consequences it had on the German nation. The exhibition presents the history of the Polish-German relations in the second part of the 20th century. The building currently belongs to the Krzyzowa Foundation, which main goal is to promote a dialogue between the European nations.

The Osówka Complex – part of an impressive project conducted by the Nazi Germany between 1943 and 1945 (code name Riese). The mysterious structure called The Underground city still hasn’t revealed all of its secrets … Discover the biggest and the most complex Hitler’s headquarters in Lower Silesia.

Książ Castle – the third biggest castle in Poland, statuated in the majestic rock cliff by the side of the Pelcznica River. Located 395 meters above the sea level and surrounded by a beautiful forest, the castle is sometimes called the Pearl of Lower Silesia. The castle’s location combined with its  size is not a common sight in Europe. In 1943 Hitler’s paramilitary organisation Todt began building one of his main quarters which, along with other objects of the Riese complex close the castle, near Osówka & Włodarz, played a crucial role.

Gross-Rosen in Rogoźnica – the biggest Nazi-German concentration camp in Lower Silesia, with particularly harsh conditions and penal work in the quarries. The motto of that place was Vermichtung durch Arbeit (Annihilation through work). Around 40 000 prisoners died here: Poles, Jews, Russians, French and Hungarian.
