At the start of the October half term, 45 of our Year 11 students visited the Polish city of Krakow. During the trip, we took part in a number of visits linked to the Holocaust, including a visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, where over a million people were killed at the hands of the Nazis, as well as the Jewish Museum, and Oscar Schindler’s factory. During the visit, we also met 87 year old Anna, a survivor of the Holocaust. We heard her experiences of the Holocaust, including how her dad died as a POW in the USSR, and how her grandparents were killed by the Nazis. We also had some ‘down-time’ when we explored the city sights, as well as shopping, bowling, and trying out the local cuisine. The students were fantastic on the trip and represented the school with pride. Thanks to the staff who accompanied the trip too!
