Why should you consider Nomadic School Tours for School Trips and Educational Visits?

trip icon

Some six million Poles died during the Second World War, half of who were Jews murdered in forests east of the country or in the death camps set up after the German occupation. By far the largest of these was Auschwitz Birkenau which was the site of over one million deaths, mainly Jews brought in from all over Europe. Our tour examines the lines that were persistently drawn by the Nazis in their relentless persecution of the Jews and other groups they deigned undesirable, enabling trip participants to bear witness to one of the darkest chapters in human history as well as reflect on the lasting lessons for today.
