Auschwitz study tour: day 2

UNISON delegation are taking part in an Auschwitz study tour to raise awareness of the atrocities of the Holocaust and also to honour Jane Haining – the only Scottish woman known to have died in the concentration camp.

The tour – which will be undertaken by UNISON representatives from across Scotland – is part of the union’s ongoing work to educate members, and the wider community to ensure these events are never forgotten.

The delegation had a full day visiting important areas of significance in Krakow.

They started with a visit to one of the synagogues/Jewish cemeteries destroyed by Nazis and restored.

Then onto the ghetto square where the first deportations took place lasting two years followed by the pharmacy.

After visiting Schindlers Factory they walked through the remains of Plaszow Concentration Camp before a candle lit vigil the the monument for all people affected at the hands of fascism.

Today we leave you with some photographs which need no further explanation:
