Oswiecim and Krakow

I'm going to Krakow on Monday for 5 days. It says here that it has great night life, casinos, clubs, bars and things to see in the day time. I'm not going for these things though. I'll be hanging out with a bunch of history teachers and the like doing some work on Auschwitz. I've been reading Filip Muller's account of being a prisoner and Robert Wistrich's book 'Hitler and the Holocaust' in prep for the visit and have also watched the BBC documentary on DVD. The books and archive footage are sobering enough. I have no idea how it will impact on me when I'm there.
