Subject: Krakow guide
Hi! We visited Auschwitz about 3 years ago, though we did it independently. I took one tour while we were there in Krakow and did not care for the tour company, it may have been the guide. It was Orbis tours. we visited the Salt Mine there and she very definetly downplayed the use of slave Jewish Labor there during WW2. Even though a star of David was in the room, she displayed other anti-semitic actions along the way. we again saw her in Kamierze, the old Jewish section. There is a bookstore at the end of the plaza opposite the Old Synogoge. They organize tours from a Jewish perspective. we took the tour of Kazmierz from the bookstore. Check around to see what is available now, as we were there going on 3 yrs. ago. alan
