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 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.

The Wartime Ghetto. The Jewish population in Krakow was moved into this small area in March 1941. For many Polish Jews this ghetto was the last stop before the death camps.
The exhibition pieces together a picture of the relics of Jewish life and culture in Polish Galicia that can still be seen today, interpreting these traces in a manner which is informative, accessible, and thought-provoking. Your group will be guided round the exhibition by a specialist guide from the museum.
The Galicia Museum offers a unique opportunity for students to meet and engage with somebody who experienced the Holocaust first hand and to fully understand what life was like at this time. We highly recommend this experience to you. Not only will this unique chance to experience ‘living history’ enable your students to empathise further with their subject, it is quite simply something you will remember forever.
The Galicia Museum offers half day workshops based on a range of topics to support study of Jewish culture, tradition and the Holocaust. Workshops are led by qualified, experienced educators from the Museum’s Education Department.
