Holocaust Studies Tour, 2024, Day 11

Schindler’s Factory Museum and Free Kraków

On our first full day in Kraków, we started off walking from Old Town to the Schindler Factory Museum. On the way we stopped by a 14th century basilica (Corpus Christi), the Ghetto Plaza Memorial, and a small stretch of the ghetto wall. In the afternoon and evening students explored widely what Old Town Kraków has to offer. Some pictures are below feature a Wawel Castle tour, some cultural performances in the Old Town Square, and a classical music concert at the Peter and Paul Cathedral.

Tomorrow is Auschwitz I and II (Birkenau). We will spend at least six hours there. It will be our hardest day, emotionally and perhaps physically as well.
