Stutthof Death Camp Museum

  ul. Muzealna 6, Sztutowo ,   No District          (+48) 798 41 80 24     27 Feb 2024
Stutthof Museum is a recommended visit for anyone who wishes to learn more about the 20th-century history of Gdańsk, WWII and the effects this had on the local population. It is an easy day trip from Gdańsk, being less than an hour drive from the city and with buses going regularly to the site. While the crowds of visitors to the most infamous of death camps at Auschwitz are hit by the overwhelming scale of the murder and cruelty carried out by the Nazis, the peaceful, tidily kept camp of Stutthof set among the trees and just a few kilometres from the beach, has a different atmosphere but an equally lasting effect. Covering around 20% of the former camp area, Stutthof Museum has undergone a significant program of modernisation. NOTE: It is advised that children under 13 should not visit.

For some background, read our feature: A Brief History of Stutthof. Those considering a visit to this important site should read our feature: Visiting Stutthof Death Camp from Gdańsk.

Average visiting time: 2hrs.

Viele vergessen, was dort passierte. Erhaltet die Erinnerungen! Vergeßt aber auch nicht die Greueltaten der Russen und Polen, die viele dieser Lager weiterbenutzten und Deutsche dort mißhandelten und umbrachten. Vergeßt auch nicht, daß dieses Land, auch mein deutsches Vaterland ist, wenn auch von Polen verwaltet. Nie wieder Krieg! Many forget what happened there. Get the Memories! But also do not Forget the Atrocities of the Russians and Poles, who continued to use many of these Camps and mistreated and killed Germans there. Also Do not Forget that this Country, also my German Fatherland, is also managed by Poland. Never again war!

For as long as I shall live and breathe Gods given air and beauty , every breathe I take shall be in forever thought of these soul that were taken away from this precious life on earth.My father was a prisoner in this camp. Polish Air Force Paratrooper and managed to escape alongside four other Airmen. This was due to the high rate of drunkenness amongst the German guards on the gate. I have much more to tell you on this subject. A superb site .God bless you all.
