The class visited Auschwitz-Birkenau in the south of Poland, which was the biggest concentration camp that existed during the Holocaust, holding Jewish women and children. The students felt it was an overwhelming experience to visit such a historic place that holds an immense amount of dark memories. This camp was responsible for the death of more than 1 million Jewish people that were brought from all over Europe.
