    ... as it was behind gates and up some metal steps to the third floor. Inside the room was nice and clean, they only had a twin room available but we quickly made a nest on the floor with the mattresses! It was about 3pm and we had not had lunch so went out to find somewhere to eat and have a few drinks. We walked over the bridge into the Jewish quarter and after going inside the gothic Corpus Christi Church, which a big imposing bell tower, inside was ...

    ... 15 people max, with a 7h00 am hotel pick up. We viewed a documentary on the way there, some accounts of what the Red Army discovered when they arrived at the camps for the Liberation, filmed by a young Russian soldier. Auschwitz itself is now a museum, and we had a great tour guide. We visited some of the barracks. After passing through the INFAMOUS gates of Auschwitz, we meandered through a multitude of uniform red brick barracks surrounded by electric ...

The staff created an amazing atmosphere unlike any I ...

    ... back of the head. We saw the gallows where dead Jews would hang for days as a reminder to others. We saw the hanging poles, where Jews would have their hands tied behind their backs and were then hung until their shoulders popped. Walking back through the entrance of the camp, I was thankful to have had this learning experience, even at the emotional cost of standing at the site where all of these atrocities had been committed. I felt heavy, tired, and a bit sick ...

    ... trip. The guided tour of Auschwitz 1 camp and then Auschwitz 2-Birkenau memorial provided a very informative and poignant insight. We arrived back into krakow in the late afternoon in a more solemn mood. We had a walk around the old town and visited the main market square where we eventually enjoyed a lovely dinner of polish sausages and more dumplings all cooked over wood fires. We agreed that we would head out ...
