Psychology Trips to Krakow

During a study visit to Krakow your learners can explore the city's rich historical and psychological legacy. The Kazimierz Jewish district which formed the Krakow Ghetto and a visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau bring home the realities of Nazi occupation and the persecution and fear the city lived under. A talk with a survivor of the holocaust, while they still remain, will form a great case study for any student of psychology and sociology.

Reasons to Visit

Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp

6 million Poles, including 3 million Jews, perished in Nazi concentration camps between 1940-45 over 1,5 million at Auschwitz alone. Many of the original buildings stand to this day in Auschwitz as a bleak reminder of the camp’s history.

Galicia Jewish Museum

Housed in a renaissance synagogue this museum is a rich collection of Judaica dedicated to Jewish heritage and is one of the best in Central Europe.

Kazimierz: Jewish Quarter

Kazimierz was the historical centre of Krakow’s Jewish religious and social life and was incorporated into Krakow in the 18th century. The tour takes you to the most important monuments in this area including the Old Synagogue, the Remuh Synagogue and Remuh Cemetery.

The Schindler trail begins in the district of Kazimierz which has been a Jewish centre since the 15th Century. The trail includes the Kazimierz Ghetto, the wartime ghetto area, Pankiewicz's chemist shop, Schindler's enamel factory and the Plaszow concentration camp.
