PRE visit: excellent exhibition at the Galicia Jewish museum followed by student workshops and a meeting with an Auschwitz survivor, a former child prisoner who was a subject of Dr Mengele's experiments, who told us about her story and showed us her number tattoo. Very moving. https://t.co/ZwCqYSY32K

PRE visit: back at the hotel after nearly 16 hours out. Mr B's gadget says we have walked 11.1 miles, Mr C's says 11km. In any case it's been a good but hard day. Very moving visit to Auschwitz this morning, students laid candles and had a moment of reflection at the memorials. https://t.co/2Xav3CzUZ0
