Religious Studies Trips to Krakow
The horror of the treatment of the Jewish population under Nazi rule cannot be overstated. During a study visit to Krakow your learners can follow the Jewish experience, from the Kazimierz district which formed the Krakow Ghetto to the Final Solution at Auschwitz-Birkenau. A talk from a survivor of the holocaust, while they still remain, is likely to be a moment students will never forget as they explore the legacy on both the Jewish faith and wider community.
Our sample itinerary provides you with an idea of the visits you can cover during your trip. We can tailor-make an itinerary to support your specific learning outcomes.
