6th formers Hanna & Reece visit Auschwitz

Our visit to Auschwitz

DSC_0218

On the 24th of April we visited KL Auschwitz 1 and Auschwitz Birkenau which were concentration and death camps in Nazi occupied Poland during the Second World War. We were chosen along with 180 other students from across Wales to participate in the Lessons from Auschwitz Project and it was an unforgettable experience for us both. Our day trip to Poland widely enhanced our knowledge and understanding, along with our passion about the emotional topic however we are still filled with unanswerable questions. As we journeyed through the two camps we faced many hard challenges such as seeing first hand some of the belongings left behind by some of the camp mates and hearing the sad and brave stories of some of the families and people that had lived and died within the camp.

We were also granted access to some parts of the camp that the majority of the public aren’t allowed to see such as the children’s barracks.

It is an experience that we can safely say we will never forget and we hope to be able to share it with you all, and by doing this we can honour the 1.1 million people that were murdered in these camps.

It has been the most emotionally challenging experience but is the best experience I have ever had. We would both strongly advise you to part take in an experience like this if you ever get the chance!
