Auschwitz visitors, almost 1.4 million in 2010.

KRAKOW TOURS – As many as 1.38 million visited the site of the German Nazi death camp at Auschwitz in 2010, the museum has announced.

The record high attendance in the 60-year history of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and State Museum in Oświęcim, southern Poland, topped the previous year’s attendance of 1.3 million.

The numbers soared despite the air traffic freeze following the volcano eruption in Iceland and the May floods in the southern and central parts of the country.

“The former death camp is the most frequented memorial site in the world,” said museum spokesperson Bartosz Bartyzel.

Apart from 530,000 Poles visiting, the largest group coming to Auschwitz last year were British, accounting for 84,000 people, followed by Italians, numbering 74,000 and 63,000 French nationals.

Up to 850,000 visitors were students.

The museum’s staff member Andrzej Kacorzyk has pointed to the increasing number of foreigners from European countries and the Far East: “Last year the Memorial Site was visited by more inhabitants of South Korea than the US citizens,” he said.

There is also a growing interest in the museum’s multilingual guided tours and educational programmes

The Auschwitz Nazi death camp complex, established in 1940, claimed the lives of over 1.1 million people.

Krakow’s gone to the Dogs

KRAKOW TOURS – Krakow went to the dogs in the best possible way this weekend, as an army of dachshunds descended on the city centre. The dogs – and their owners – were marched from the Barbakan, along Floriańska to the Market Square at noon on Sunday. The march was led by a brass band and flag-bearers. 
Animal lovers ignored the light drizzle to line the route, and gathered in the square to meet the pampered pooches. There were even a few interlopers from other breeds, come to pay their respects.

The Dachshund March, or Marsz Jamników, has been held annually in Krakow for the past 15 years. This year’s theme was the Battle of Grunwald, to commemorate the 600th anniversary of the decisive victory. The dogs arrived dressed in various costumes, or au naturelle to show off their sleek forms.
