The Nazis & the Holocaust School Trip to Krakow
Visiting Auschwitz on a history school trip to Krakow is an experience which your students are unlikely to forget, but it’s essential to understanding 20th century history and the darker side of human nature!
Words cannot describe the enormity of the horror that the Jewish population of Europe experienced at the hands of the Nazi regime. But a history school trip to Krakow can make it more real for your students.
Other unforgettable experiences available on this tour include a visit to Schindler’s Factory Museum, where the exhibition ‘Life in Krakow under Nazi Occupation’ will bring that period to life for your students. And at the Galicia Museum you can meet with a Holocaust survivor or ‘Righteous Among the Nations’ who will tell your students about their own experiences.
