27th January 2015

Today, 27th January, marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau.  Across the UK and Europe commemorative events are taking place to make sure the atrocities that took place at Auschwitz are never forgetten.

Over one million people died at Auschwitz, with rumours the only indication of what was taking place at Auschwitz during World War Two.  Upon liberation 70 years ago today, the world’s eyes were opened to the atrocities committed by the Nazi’s, however it took some time for the world to believe what actually happened at Auschwitz and other Nazi camps like it.

Adaptable Travel for many years have been organising school trips to Auschwitz and Krakow, helping school and college students to better their understanding of what took place.  This is summed up fantastically well by one of our group leader's who recently took a group to Auschwitz with Adaptable Travel;

“It was a trip that was felt in the hearts of every pupil. Auschwitz should be a place that everyone visits, something that can't be described or explained. A necessary lesson that can't be taught”.

To mark the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz and to aid in the education of the Holocaust for future generations, Adaptable Travel are providing free student and teacher resources to accompany all Krakow and Auschwitz study trips – Project Krakow.


Project Krakow

Project Krakow is a unique range of student and teacher resources developed by Adaptable Travel that will assist in developing students understanding of the Holocaust, Auschwitz and Jewish life during WW2.  The resources will come in the form of a comprehensive workbook for students to be used before and after their school trip to Krakow. They will explain the origins and development of Anti-Semitic feelings in Germany before WWII, the political doctrine that was formulated and the brutality of its implementation by the Nazi regime during WWII. The guide is built upon factual evidence and real life human stories from the period.  In addition, you will receive teacher resources to assist in making the most out of your educational content for the school trip.


The Student Workbook

This resource will enhance your school trip to Krakow whilst providing an invaluable classroom resource for extended projects based around WWII.  Auschwitz is a tragedy of humanity, created by the Third Reich.  This is a sensitive and at times shocking topic.  The Student Workbook from Adaptable Travel will help students confront this significant part of WWII and support their Auschwitz and Krakow experience.  This is an innovative GCSE curriculum-led full colour printed workbook that every member of your group will receive.


Teacher Resources

Teacher Handbook: This is a great accompaniment to the Student Workbook by giving answers to questions, guidance on Krakow trips, plus some great ideas for further activities both in Krakow and back in the classroom.

GCSE-focused Powerpoints: This will give clear learning objectives and outcomes and includes:
•  Content from the student workbook, organised for teacher-led study so can be used in evening study sessions or back in school before/after the trip;

•  Model answers and mark schemes to practice questions in addition to those in the Student Workbook;

•  Teachers’ notes to accompany slides where required.
