Krakow - Auschwitz - 2017 - DP

Inquire Booking

Join us on a tour to Krakow and the heart of Hitler’s reign of terror - Auschwitz.

There are few names that stand for the horror of the Nazi reign over Europe quite like that of Auschwitz. A death camp cannot tell the true nature of a place that turned killing into a mechanized process, humans into a raw material and murder into a factory system. The attempted genocide of Jews, Gypsies and other demonized groups is one which we all still find hard to explain. How did a rational intelligent nation like the Germans allow themselves to get into a position where this could take place? How did a man take part in what went on here by day and go home to play with his children in the evening? How did the camp function and eventually fall? How did you survive this place? What do we learn about ourselves when we visit this place?

This is a special tour not to be missed as we tell an incredible story about a time and place – and more than one nation.
