    Krakow Trip November 2019


    Very early on the morning of Tuesday 19th November Year 12 pupils from SJP and SMCC departed from Liverpool John Lennon to Krakow.  Once we had arrived and settled in the hotel we set off for the first of our visits.  This was a walking tour of the Jewish Quarter of Krakow.  The Jewish population of Krakow is not very big since WW2 however they do have several synagogues which we visited and a selection of lovely restaurants tucked away in a beautiful square of the Jewish Quarter.  Pupils also had the opportunity to try some traditional Polish food as we went to a street market for lunch.  Later on we had a tour of Schindler's Factory Museum which has been devoted to the wartime experiences in Krakow under the five-year Nazi occupation during the World War II.
