A visit to Krakow for Degree and Foundation students allows them to cover the many questions that the Holocaust raises in terms of ethics, morality, racism and persecution.

When visiting Krakow, students of Theology, Religion, Ethics and Philosophy can study how this once thriving Jewish community of the 19th Century tragically fell in to decline with Nazi occupation.

A range of immersive visits can help students to gain deeper understanding of key events relative to Religious Studies; 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. 

Also known as the 'Rome of the North' Krakow is an important centre of Catholicism, meaning your students have an ideal opportunity to compare Judaism and Christianity.
