This five-day tour will explore and examine some key aspects of the Holocaust and the experience of war for the Polish people.

The murder of more than six million Jews during the Second World War remains one of the darkest but defining aspects of the conflict. On this new tour we look at some key aspects of the Holocaust in the area that was German occupied Poland during WW2 and examine the experience of war for the Polish people. We tour the terrifyingly massive Auschwitz Concentration Camp, go to Oscar Schindler’s Factory and discover the story of Schindler’s List. We also walk the Kraków Ghetto and see the Museum of the Polish Home Army.

We start our tour in Kraków having an in-depth look at the Kraków Ghetto seeing the ‘Chairs’ memorial, the old Chemist shop and the buildings where Jewish families lived.

The factory site is now a museum which helps explain the war in Poland as well as the Holocaust. Then visit the site of Plaszów Concentration Camp, seeing the memorial. (B)
