Known to most by its German name Auschwitz, the modestly sized city of Oswiecim sits at the foot of the Jura Mountains, just 50 km (30 mi) west of Krakow. The location of some of the most horrific moments of the 20th century, Oswiecim has managed to find a measure of peace over the last few decades, turning itself into a regional center of industry. Although most travelers just pass through on their way to the Holocaust memorials that once served as notorious extermination and forced labor camps, Oswiecim does contain a small but rewarding old town, featuring several churches and the remains of a medieval castle.
