    Default Concentration Camp Study Trip - Autumn 2015

    Following the success of the recent KZ tour (see link below), the next such excursion, itself planned before the previous tour departed, is now available for reservation. Please contact via PM for details regarding estimates of costs etc. A basic outline is shown below but a full itinerary will be posted once completed. Finer points still need to be realised, patently, but members wishing to join us should look to arrive in Prague the day before departure, i.e. Sunday 15th November, and depart the day after we return from the study trip. As before, places will be limited.

    Regards,

    Carl

    Thank you Harry. That is indeed a great shame, would have been good to have you along. The Birkenau site alone demands at least several miles walking, so these visits do require a fair amount of walking to cover the various elements present. I am glad that you are able to at least see some images and snippets of information here on the forum.

    Regards,

    Hi Carl, looks another fine tour you have planned there. I would love to come but I do not think the wife would be to happy with me "clearing off" again, leaving her with the new arrival!! (maybe next year!) Leon.

    I personally cannot make this great tour on this occasion, but I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in going. Having been on the last tour to Auschwitz/Gross-Rosen etc, I can testify to the superb planning and depth of knowledge that Carl and Martine will bring to the experience. If you can make it, go for it, you will not regret it! Leon.
