Our Sixth Form Historians have just returned from a sobering first-hand insight into the brutalities on the Holocaust in Krakow, Poland. The three day trip was a huge success and gave students a first hand insight into what life was like under the Nazis during the second world war.
The trip consisted of a tour of the Jewish Ghettos in Kazimierz, which demonstrated the harsh dictatorship and living condition Jewish families were submitted to by the Nazi Regime, followed on the Sunday by the harrowing reality of visiting Auschwitz, the largest and most infamous of the Nazi concentration camps responsible for the mass genocide of a race of innocent people. During the long weekend students also had the opportunity to explore the beautiful city of Krakow and tour the Wielicska Salt Mines.
The trip was an amazing yet emotional experience, which all who participated in it will never forget. The History Department would like to thank those who attended for making our visit such a memorable one.
