Auschwitz-Birkenau is infamous for being one of the most horrifying death camps where millions of Jews, POWs and others were tortured and killed by the Nazis during the holocaust. Kahan Travel arranges Auschwitz Concentration Camp tours to allow visitors an insight to the vibrant Jewish Community of the past and glean an understanding of the Jewish Community of the present. These trips also ensure that these atrocities are never forgotten or allowed to be denied.
We were lucky. We walked through the gates of hell and were able to walk out safely some time later. May those who were not be of blessed memory. We will not forget them.
The trip was brilliantly organised and was a profound and deeply moving experience, which will remain in our memory and meant that if all we could was visit these terrible places, we were at least able to bear witness and tell others, to encourage them to make this journey to see Jewry's terrible fate at the hands of barbariansWe can only hope that the rise of anti-semitism in Europe will be opposed by right minded people 'though the signs of this are not too evident as anti Israel bias is merging with something more insidious!
I just wanted to share my feelings while they are still fresh.I spoke to you a number of times about the trip but didn't go for it until yesterday.
I must say that you were professional from A- Z and provided everything to a high standard.This trip will stay ingrained in my mind forever. It was just the right amount of time and you packed in a vast amount for one day.
The tour was extremely sad for myself as my great grandparents were murdered in Auschwitz by the Nazis and my grandmother worked in the camps and saw the butcher mengele.I had heard loads of stories and read loads of stories but seeing this was another thing completely. It is very hard to express my feelings in writing but can say that it was a trip I will never ever forget especially seeing the brutality that the Nazis used which is shocking to the core.
I believe that it is a must for all to see this and to never forget what was done 70 years ago.I highly recommend your trips.
As you warned us before our departure I have been deeply moved since our trip and have not stopped thinking about what we saw. No matter how much I knew or have read about what happened, seeing it with my own eyes made it real. I would like to thank you for taking my family and I and for your organising and planning everything so well. I will most definitely pass on your details to my friends who are interested in taking such an important trip. Kind regards Sara Prevezer and family
