WW2 Tours for Educators and Students

WW2 History Tours for Educators and Students

Get to the heart of Poland’s wartime history with Poland at War Tours by booking a place on our 14-Day WW2 tour. Our expert guides will take you through the sacrifices, heroism, defiance, and tragedy that defined this crucial period.

We will visit Holocaust memorials and sites where the mass murder of Europe’s Jewish population occurred in Nazi-occupied Poland. We’ll also explore key Polish military sites and WW2-focused museums, covering the ideologies, events, and individuals that shaped the war.

You will be led by our tour owner, Damien Stewart, a professional psychologist with a passion for history. Damien is dedicated to shedding light on the human side of WW2 and sharing how people responded to this catastrophic event.

With Damien as your guide, you will be introduced to a series of local experts who will bring the history of the war to life and unlock the secrets of the incredible places you will visit.

By exploring Poland’s numerous WW2 sites, you will gain a deeper understanding of the context and scale of the events. Make history come alive with Poland at War Tours!

If our 14-day tour is not suitable for the needs of your group, we can also craft a custom itinerary.

Why Choose Poland at War Tours for Your Group?

Founded by Australian psychologist and historian Damien Stewart, our tours are designed to widen awareness of WWII and the Holocaust as they occurred in Occupied Poland. This makes them ideal for university students who wish to deepen their knowledge of the war or educators who would like to take their pupils on an unforgettable history-focused trip.

Our tours focus on what life was like in Poland under Nazi and Soviet occupation, with a special focus on the extraordinary Polish Home Army, the largest underground resistance movement of WWII.

We share stories of resilience and defiance in the face of tyranny and celebrate the lives of those extra special Polish heroes who risked their lives to save their Jewish neighbours. Along the journey, you will meet heroes such as Witold Pilecki, Irena Sendler, Jan Karski, Tadeusz Pankiewicz, and many more.

Despite losing approximately 17% of their pre-war population, a greater percentage of lives lost than any other country that fought in WWII, Poland also boasts the greatest number of Righteous Among the Nations awardees, those recognised for saving Jews during the Holocaust.

We believe Poland is a unique place to visit and explore both WWII and the Holocaust. At Poland At War Tours, we believe it is crucial to visit and support key WWII and Holocaust sites in Poland so that they can be maintained for future generations to visit and learn the lessons we all must learn to ensure that such events can never happen again.
