Unite Against Fascism (UAF) is again organising an educational trip to the Auschwitz concentration camp and the city of Krakow in Poland. The trip aims to offer a greater understanding of the Holocaust.

 

Trade unionists, students and teachers are particularly welcome. There will be guided tours and talks about the Holocaust, Jewish resistance and fighting fascism today.

 

We will be based in the historic city of Krakow, a city that ranks alongside Prague and Vienna as one of Central Europe’s gems. Until the Second World War, Krakow was one of the great Jewish centres in Europe. The dates are from November 8th to November 12th.

 

 

Between June 1942 and March 1943 the Nazis “cleared out” the ghetto and sent all the inhabitants to extermination camps. The story of the ghetto’s liquidation and Plaszow concentration camp was made famous by Steven Spielberg’s incredible film Schindler’s List.

 

As well as the trip to the Auschwitz concentration camp and Birkenau death camp, the itinerary includes a guided tour of the Jewish Quarter (Kazimierz) and the Krakow ghetto ending at the Schindler Factory. In the evening we will hold lectures such as “Understanding the Holocaust” and “Fighting fascism today”.

COST

The trip costs £235 waged or £150 student/unwaged for 4 nights. This includes a central hotel, the guided tour of the Jewish quarter and ghetto, lectures and the coach trip to Auschwitz.
