Upper-secondary school students, as part of a visit to the former Nazi German concentration and extermination camp Auschwitz may participate in a tour program specially prepared by the ICEAH. For proper preparation prior to a visit to the memorial site we also recommend using the online lessons titled "Auschwitz - Memorial Site". Upper-secondary school students can broaden their knowledge by using other online lessons prepared by ICEAH.

Complementing the tour of the Auschwitz Memorial with a guide-educator may include participation in a variety of educational activities, such as workshops, multimedia presentations or video lectures, held as part of one-or two-day study visit. Classes are held in several language variants, among others. Polish, English, German or French.  

Upper-secondary school students can support the Museum and Auschwitz Memorial by becoming involved in Voluntary activities, thus significantly contributing to the preservation of the memory of Auschwitz, thereby acquiring valuable experience in the realization of various educational, restoration or publications projects.
