If a single word can epitomise evil, perhaps it is ‘Auschwitz’: near the small Polish town of Oświęcim around 1.1 million people were murdered as the Nazis’ Final Solution reached its terrible zenith.
Anglia’s hallmark Holocaust tours visit the former Jewish community of Kazimierz, the site of the wartime ghetto in Podgorze and the infamous Plaszow labour camp, familiar to viewers of Schindler’s List, before spending a full-day’s study visit at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Museum. A highlight of this tour is the increasingly rare opportunity to meet a Holocaust survivor or recipient of the ‘Righteous Amongst the Nations’ award, to hear their unique stories and ask them about their experiences.
All of our tours to Krakow and Auschwitz are accompanied by an experienced guide chosen for their expert knowledge and ability to engage with your students, helping them develop their understanding of this most emotive of subjects.
