At the end of June 2017, while on a study trip to Poland, a group of teachers affiliated with Classrooms Without Borders, an American organization for professional development of teachers, met with Schools of Dialogue alumni from Starachowice – students from Kamil Baczyński High School No. 3 with Integrated Classes and Polish Nobel Prize Winners Junior High School No. 4. After icebreaker activities, the students invited their guests on a walking tour following the footsteps of the Jewish community in Starachowice.
The most moving part of their visit was the meeting with Howard Chandler, a Holocaust survivor from Starachowice, who also accompanied the group during the walk. He shared his story with the participants who gatehered in the Starachowice Cultural Center.
