    • Krakow 2019

      Published 24/01/19

      Our annual Cross-Curricular trip to Krakow to visit the historic and powerful site of Auschwitz-Birkenau took place 19th to 21st January this year.

       

      The trip started on a lighter note with a visit to a traditional Polish restaurant for dinner & folklore entertainment, which both students and staff participated in.

       

      The next day was a moving and emotional day with an early start to visit first Auschwitz I, the original concentration camp, and later Auschwitz II, the death camp where over 1 million lives perished at the hands of the Nazi regime.

       

      The afternoon consisted of lunch in the medieval town square followed by a visit to the Galicia Jewish Museum where we had the great honour of hearing from Anita Panek, a survivor of the Holocaust who went on to become a successful scientist in South America. Her story was one of great sadness but also one of human resilience and inspiration. This was then followed by dinner at a local Jewish restaurant.

       

      The final day had an altogether lighter theme with a visit to the Salt Mines and then some all important souvenir shopping!!

       

      This is now the third year we have run the trip and it remains a difficult but thoroughly worthwhile experience for both staff and students.
