A város történelme legalább a 12. századig nyúlik vissza. Lengyelország 1772-es felosztása után a várost a Habsburg birodalomhoz csatolták és csak az első világháború vége után került ismét lengyel uralom alá. Ezidő alatt Oświęcim ipari központtá és fontos vasúti csomóponttá vált. A város zsidó lakossága 1921-ben 4950 fő volt. A második világháború előestéjén közel 8000 zsidó élt a városban, a lakosság tübb, mint fele. Oświęcimet a háború kezdete után rögtön elfoglalták. 1939 októberére hozzácsatolták Nagynémetországhoz.
