Day Trip to Stutthof from Gdansk | Day Trip to Stutthof from Gdansk

This morning your guide will meet you just outside your cruise ship in Gdansk for your one hour journey to Sztutowo for a visit to the remains of Stutthof Concentration Camp. This camp was the first built by the Nazi regime that was outside of Germany and was used mostly for political dissidents rather than Jews and most of the early victims were non-Jewish Poles from Gdansk and Pomorze region.

In 1942, this became a “regular” concentration camp for Polish and Jews also from other regions of occupied countries. In June 1944 it became a part of Nazi “Endloesung” project “the final solution of the Jewish problem”. In this way it became a camp of mass-extermination. Within the 5 years of it existence Stutthof grew from a small camp 3500 prisoners (in 1940) to 57 000 prisoners (in 1944). It was a place where 110 000 people were kept from 28 countries and over 30 nationalities. The most of them – 65 000 died. In museum you can watch a documentary film about the camp. Most of the camp was razed to the ground when Nazis fled, but today there is a memorial building and blocks commemorating the original barracks.

As time allows at the end of the day, your guide will give you a walking overview of Gdansk before returning to your cruise ship.

Note: Some touring today is on foot through mostly pedestrian areas. Please wear appropriate footwear.
