Jewish Heritage Tour Announced

One does not need to be a Holocaust scholar to have a deep interest that watershed event. The people and places of Holocaust history are deeply embedded in our understanding of what lessons we must learn in order to create a safer, better world.

After many months of discussion, the Holocaust Center is proud to announce that July 10 through July 20, 2016 it is sponsoring an eleven-day Jewish Heritage Tour to Warsaw, Krakow, Lublin, Prague and more. Come with us as we explore, remember and reflect!

Our journey begins with our Sunday flight from Orlando to Warsaw, where we will tour that city’s memorable places including the Warsaw Ghetto and Ghetto Hero’s Monument, followed by visits to the Nozyk Synagogue and the Jewish Historical Institute. Early Wednesday we depart to Tykocin and to the Treblinka extermination camp; the following day we head for Krakow, stopping along the way to at the Majdanek Concentration Camp and the Krasnik Jewish Cemetery.

Highlights of our two days in Krakow include a walking tour…visits to the old synagogues…the Galacia Jewish Museum and Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory…and a six-hour study tour at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp Complex.

The final stop is Prague, with a brief visit to Lidice Memorial and a day trip to Terezin. Our final day there is a free day to explore the Golden City and reflect on the great lessons this special tour brings to light.

With our partner, Turico tours, we are able to offer two options: a complete “land and air” package or the “land-only” price for those who choose to extend their stay. Both booking options include nine nights’ accommodations, daily hotel breakfasts, entrance to all scheduled sites, and ten days with a Licensed Tour Guide and a tourist-class bus equipped with AC, TV and DVD. Taxes, fees, and liability insurance are also included; participants are responsible for the cost of lunch and dinner each day, gratuities, and shopping. Proof of travel medical insurance is required for all participants.
