Poland trip

At 4am on 17th February a group of 45 Myton students, led by Miss Concannon, set off on a four-day trip to Poland. They stayed in Krakow and had the opportunity to experience Auschwitz, as well as visiting the Oscar Schindler Museum and the Galicia Jewish Museum, where they met a lady whose family hid a Jewish girl in their home for three years during the Nazi occupation. The girl survived the war and was afterwards reunited with her brother who had been helped to escape by Oscar Schindler.

The students’ experiences on the trip will almost certainly have enabled them to begin to understand the horrific events of the Second World War. Miss Whitworth, who supported the trip, said:

“When you are standing in the cold of Auschwitz and look around, you get a little glimpse of what the conditions in the camp might have been like. Many of the students commented on the sheer vastness of Birkenau (the death camp at Auschwitz) where the barracks stretch as far as the eye can see in both directions. It’s then that you start to understand the scale of the horror that took place where you’re standing.”
