World War II Tours from Wroclaw

Discover the fascinating history of brave Allied airmen who escaped from a German POW camp on the small group Great Escape Tour from Wroclaw Poland.

Stalag Luft III was a German prisoner-of-war camp that held captured Allied airmen. In March 1943, they came up with a plan to undertake a mass-escape of 200 prisoners. In a tiny compound, 600 men worked for a year under the strictest secrecy on three tunnels named Tom, Dick, and Harry. They were hundreds of feet long, with underground railways, workshops and air pumping stations.

On March 24, 1944, 76 prisoners managed to escape from the camp through the Harry tunnel. Soon afterwards, 73 of them were recaptured. Outraged, Hitler ordered 50 of them to be executed, which was an appalling abrogation of the Geneva Convention. The classic movie "The Great Escape" was based on these dramatic events.

Along with your knowledgeable guide, you'll visit the Museum of Allied Prisoners of War in Zagan, tour the grounds of Stalag Luft III, and visit the memorial to the brave airmen who paid the highest price for an escape attempt they considered a soldier's duty.
