The Holocaust was one of the darkest chapters in 20th century history,
claiming at least six million victims. The stories connected with it are both
shocking and heart-rending, and at times, difficult to make sense of, acting as a
warning for future generations; that it should never happen again.

RTC Travel UK offers great inclusive package deals. We can arrange every aspect of your holiday, from arranging travel to and from the airport to lounge booking at the airport.

Day 1

Local departure by coach or Door-to-Door service, then to Holland for an overnight stay.

Day 2 - Anne Frank’s Story

Today we uncover the story of Anne Frank and her family, starting at the
Westerbork Concentration Camp where they were sent after being arrested in Amsterdam, before continuing for an overnight stop in Hannover area.

Day 3 - Bergen-Belsen & Anne Frank’s Memorial

Today we continue the story of Anne Frank and her family, visiting Belsen Concentration Camp where Anne died in 1945. We see the visitor’s centre and memorials before
proceeding to Berlin for three nights.

Day 4 - Berlin & the Final Solution

In Berlin we begin at the Holocaust Memorial then see the area that was the nerve-centre of the Third Reich, also the Topography of Terror exhibition. We also visit ‘Gleis 17’ in the Berlin suburbs where thousands of Jews were deported to Concentration Camps. At Wannsee we visit the conference centre where it is believed the decision to carry out the ‘Final Solution’ was made (entrance subject to modern day conferences not taking place).

Day 5 - Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp

We travel out to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp and later return to central Berlin for free time or you can join our optional tour of WW2 military history sites.

Day 6 - Wroclaw

We travel into Poland and stop at Wroclaw. Once the German city of Breslau, it had a large Jewish population. Continue to Kraków for a three-night stay.

Day 7 - The Oskar Schindler Story & Heroes Square

In Kraków, we visit the Oskar Schindler Factory which is now a museum. We take a look at the site of the Kraków Ghetto and see Heroes Square.

Day 8 - Auschwitz

At Auschwitz we visit what has become one of the enduring symbols of the horror that was the Holocaust. We take a guided visit of Auschwitz before moving on to the vast site of
Auschwitz-Birkenau, where an estimated one million died in the ‘Final Solution’. A sobering but memorable day, which brings together many of the Holocaust stories we follow on the tour.

Day 9 - The Heydrich Story

Operation Anthropoid We travel to Prague and follow the story of Operation Anthropoid (now the subject of a Hollywood movie): the assassination of SS leader Reinhard Heydrich in 1942. Overnight in Prague.

Day 10 - Terezin

This morning we travel to Terezin, once Theresienstadt. This town was turned into a Concentration Camp by the Nazis and used by them as a propaganda tool to give the impression that such camps were simply for detention. We stay tonight in Bavaria.

Day 11 - Nuremberg

We visit the Congress Hall which now houses a museum chronicling the rise and fall of the Nazis and linking it with the Holocaust story. We end our tour at the Nuremberg Courthouse
where those who had orchestrated the Holocaust were tried after WW2, and, subject to modern-day demands, also go in the courtroom itself; a fitting place to end our moving journey. We continue to Belgium for an overnight stay.

Day 12

Return home.
