Krakow, Auschwitz and a wander across the border!

A travel blog entry by nickyandian on Nov 14, 2012

... to 1.5 million people killed at Auschwitz so the grounds had a very eerie feel to them. Below are some of the main things we learnt on our tour:

  • People were told that they were being re-settled when they were moved to the camps so they took their best possessions with them, e.g. pots, pans etc.
  • 7 tonnes of hair and 80,000 shoes were found at Auschwitz after the Holocaust was over. The hair, shoes, pots and pans along with suitcases used by victims, were ...

The horses brought down never saw the surface again, they lived down there, worked down there and died down there. There was only one exception to this, the last horse who worked down there was brought up sometime in the late 70’s (we think, remember facts in this blog are sometimes a bit iffy).

Krakow Schindler Style

... We walked through the Jewish ghetto and learnt about the history of the Jewish people from Krakow, particularly the history from WWII. We learnt that the word ghetto originally meant the area where the Jewish people lived and did not imply a slum. We also visited some of the locations where scenes from Schindler’s list were filmed. We also saw some of the remains of the wall that surrounded the ghetto. The top of the wall was shaped like a series ...
