Religious Studies in Krakow

Students of Religious Studies can study how this once thriving Jewish community of the 19th Century tragically fell in to decline with Nazi occupation, until their well-documented demise. Krakow is an ideal location to study the beliefs of Judaism and to cover the many questions that the Holocaust raises in terms of ethics, morality, racism and persecution.

Contact our Sixth Form educational trips experts at FHT Group Tours today and we will be delighted to arrange a thought provoking and often emotional experience in this great city.
