Educational journey to Oświęcim, pupils of the Franciscan Gymnasium from Großkrotzenburg

Since 1967 the Gymnasium in Großkrotzenburg near Hanau is a very well-known school for Franciscan education and teaching.

The school profile and programme emphasize the collective responsibility of pupils, parents and teachers to form the spiritual and pedagogical basis that is part of the Franciscan tradition and  is applied in the school.

For several years teachers of Gymansium Großkrotzenburg organize for their students an educational journey to Oświęcim. Their programme in Oświęcim entails study tours in the camps, meeting with survivor, guided visit to town, Labyrinth exhibition of Marian Kolodziej in Harmeze and Art Exhibit in Camp Auschwitz I.
