Tour Overview

The murder of more than six million Jews during the Second World War remains one of the darkest but defining aspects of the conflict. On this tour we look at some key aspects of the Holocaust in the area that was German occupied Poland during WW2 and examine the experience of war for the Polish people. We tour the terrifyingly massive Auschwitz Concentration Camp, go to Oskar Schindler’s Factory and discover the story of Schindler’s List. We also walk the Kraków Ghetto and see the Museum of the Polish Home Army.
