Will never forget meeting an Auschwitz survivor. Will never forget the tattoo on her arm or her story

10:47 AM - 3 Dec 2017

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.

This will be one of the most memorable school trips Hinchley Wood students will make in their school years.

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.

PRE visit: moving visit and moment of reflection at Birkenau. Now back to Krakow for a bit of down time before visiting Schindler's factory

Successful first day in Krakow for the PRE visit - walked at least six miles, had lush food and learnt lots. Hopefully an earlyish night before our visit to the Auschwitz museum tomorrow.
