World War destruction and years of communist rule have done much to damage Poland’s heritage. Yet amazingly the ancient royal city of Krakow survives and with its medieval market square and Grand Cloth Hall; the city rivals the beauty of Prague and Vienna. This city is home to the Jewish quarter where Schindler’s List was filmed and perhaps, more importantly, Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps. History students will be able to really savour the harsh realities of Nazi occupation, by learning of the horrors of WWII.
