First-hand experience

Broughton Hall Catholic High School students from Years 10 and 11 have returned after a visit to Prague, Krakow and Berlin.

In Prague they went on a walking tour of Josefev, the former Jewish quarter, visited Prague Castle, Charles Bridge and the Old Town Square followed by a visit to the Terezin concentration camp.

They travelled to Krakow Poland, experiencing the beautiful buildings in the market square with the renaissance Cloth Hall and St Mary’s Church. The following day was spent visiting the concentration camps ofAuschwitz and Birkenau, which were very moving experiences.

Travelling onto Berlin where an evening visit to the German Bundestag took place proved enlightening. A tour of Berlin included the Berlin Wall, the Topography of Terror, the Jewish Museum and the Holocaust Memorial Site. It was a fantastic trip and the students experienced first-hand the Nazi Third Reich regime during the Second World War.
