Spend 12 days in 3 cities in January, 2019. We will visit the roots of the Solidarity Movement in Gdansk and partner with students at the University of Gdansk to learn about its history and culture. We will learn more about Poland’s fight for freedom in Warsaw, but also take in some culture by attending a Chopin concert in the center city. Afterwards we will visit the “old town”, where the Christmas lights continue to sparkle during this festive season. Our final stop with be to Krakow where we will tour Auschwitz and recall the horrors of the Nazi invasion of Poland.  This is a wonderful time of year to travel in Poland.
