Auschwitz for many is considered to be the Ground Zero of the final solution, the epicentre of the holocaust. It was of course one of many death camps constructed to carry out murder on an industrial scale.
Not far from the small Polish town of Oswiecim the camp is calculated to have murdered 1.1 million innocent people with grim and relentless efficiency. Our specialist guided tour visits the infamous camp and the city of Krakow. We will also consider life in wartime Poland, visiting the wartime ghetto in Podgorze and the site of the labour camp at Plaszow as seen in the film Schindler’s List.
Our programme will also include a visit to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Museum. This can be an emotive tour for obvious reasons, all of our guides are experts and of equal importance, they are experienced in working with young students in this environment.
