6th Form Student reactions to their recent History trip to Krakow in Poland

"A roller coaster of emotions… one of the most memorable trips I have ever been on. When my fiends asked me, on my return, “How was Auschwitz?”, I struggled to find an answer. Words hold such little significance in regards to the emotions I felt when physically walking through human history. It was sad, almost heart achingly so at times, but more importantly it has given me the most beautiful gift of all – appreciation: appreciation for all that life has handed to me … Our days together as a class on this trip will not be forgotten"

Student

"Totally unforgettable trip for all of us…we were constantly and continuously learning so much about Polish history and its culture as well as life in Krakow and, of course, Auschwitz. The most poignant and breath-taking event was the interview with a Holocaust survivor: so many emotions…"

Student

“This mesmerising trip left me in awe. When I arrived I was, in all honesty, clueless. Such, as a white canvass, I let the colours of history build, assimilate, dry and blend upon me. The memories of Mrs Geruszcyznska, the ghetto and the concentration camp will forever remain in my memory and affect my personal values and life. I am truly grateful for having such a comprehensive, positive and knowledge-thirsty group of historians around me… “Those who forget their past are doomed to repeat it”: Mougins School historians know…”

Student

“The best school trip I have been on from a personal point of view”

Student

“Absolutely astonishing trip… very emotional and important. As young people it is vital that we do not repeat the mistakes from such horrors of the past. My highlight was the amazing Schindler Museum and that talk from Mrs Miroslawa Geruszcyznska. To hear, face to face, about the trauma and emotion of her experience in wartime Poland was a privilege and something that cannot be found in any video or documentary. This visit was a huge success and should take place in further years…”

Student

“This was an extraordinary trip … the best I have ever been on. Meeting Mrs Geruszcyznska was the highlight of the trip and to hear how she earned the title of ‘Righteous Amongst Nations’ was amazing. Krakow is beautiful: a city full of culture with the walking tour around the former Jewish Ghetto being an inspiration.”

Student

“I am not usually a fan of school trips … but I think it is fair to say that the Poland History trip got everything right to make a really memorable and impactful experience. The places we visited gave me a real insight into Poland during the Second World War: having a tour of the Jewish district on the first day gave a perfect foundation for all the other places we visited. Listening to someone who lived through the most horrific moments in the history of mankind was such a surreal experience… but one that will live with me for a very long time. One of the hardest parts of the trip was to walk around the most infamous extermination camp of Auschwitz. Even now, writing days later, I cannot really process that I walked on the same ground that was walked on by millions of people - most of whom were murdered in that same place.”
