Visiting the Stutthof Museum in Sztutowo
The Stutthof Museum in Sztutowo is a memorial and educational site about the history of the German concentration camp Stutthof. Opened in 1962 by the initiative of former prisoners of the camp, it is situated on about 20 hectares of the former camp's territory.
Key exhibits include the partially preserved Old Camp, gas chamber, commandant's office with garages, vegetable gardens, and greenhouses. The museum also features reconstructions of crematoriums, the now-empty fields of the New and Jewish Camps, and a monumental monument by Wiktor Tołkin. It houses extensive post-camp archives and offers permanent and temporary exhibitions.
Stutthof was the first and longest-operating German extermination camp on Polish lands, established on September 2, 1939. Its prisoners were citizens of Poland, Hungary, the USSR, and other countries, mainly Poles from the northern part of the country and Soviet citizens, including war prisoners and the Jewish population.
Various sources indicate that the number of victims may have ranged from 65,000 to 85,000. The camp was liberated on May 9, 1945, by the Red Army, and its staff was tried in a special trial.
What does a visit to the Stutthof Museum in Sztutowo look like?
A key feature of our service is that you can decide on-site whether to explore the camp museum on your own or to take a guided tour.
However, I recommend taking a guided tour of the camp to discover its history and the region. You will see historical artifacts and recordings from the Nazi era that bring you closer to the realities of that time.
The tour includes areas of the Old and New Camps, the gas chambers, crematorium, and the commandant's house. Each of these areas reminds us of the dark chapters of history and serves as a warning for the future.
