In the middle of a very dark night in early October ten students and six staff set off for Bristol airport at the start of a three day trip Krakow in south-west Poland. The plan was to visit the Nazi death camps of Auschwitz and Birkenau, and to find out about the Holocaust first hand from one of the victims. We also hoped to soak up some of the atmosphere in one of Europe’s most beautiful medieval cities. This would be very relevant to our studies in History and Citizenship but we also hoped for a deeply moving and thought-provoking personal experience.
