This is a part of the Auschwitz tour where you will visit this place with the guided tour you can take from the reception. Check for your language schedule prior to the visit so that you get the right slot.

You can't "review" this place and everyone will experience it differently. If you are in two minds about going, go. It's so important that these atrocities are never forgotten, especially with the world as it is, and you will most likely find it rewarding.

It is suitable as long as they can behave and respect what they are seeing without getting upset or be silly. If they bore easily then they may find it hard to listen for the full tour.
