KRAKOW, Poland - Students of the North Shore Hebrew Academy in Great Neck aren't simply learning about the Holocaust through textbooks and black-and-white photographs. They got to see one of the most notorious spots in Hebrew history firsthand. The students journeyed to Krakow, Poland, where they visited the site of the Auschwitz concentration camp. Countless people were mercilessly slaughtered there at the hands of the Nazi regime. On the visit, the students saw guard towers, barracks, barbed wire, crematoriums and gas chambers. Being at the hellish camp was especially poignant for some of the students who had relatives who were imprisoned there, or at other Nazi camps.News 12 Long Island series: Journey of Remembrance
