Religious Studies trips to 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.

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.

A range of immersive visits can help students to gain deeper understanding of key events in modern history; from the Galicia Museum and Schindler Factory & Museum to Auschwitz or Birkenau Concentration Camps. Similarly, meeting a Concentration Camp Survivor or Member of the Righteous Among the Nations gives students an insight to the real-life experiences and stories of those who lived through these times and faced persecution. 

Why not visit Krakow for your next History student trip, or take a look below for more inspiration.
