Israeli travel companies ‘fixed prices for student trips to Auschwitz’

Nothing is sacred.

Nine Israeli travel executives have been arrested for allegedly fixing prices on student trips to Auschwitz and other Nazi death camps in Poland.

Thousands of Israeli children visit the concentration camps every year with their schools but police believe a cartel of travel companies plotted to keep prices artificially high.

The tour companies were charging parents around 6,000 shekels (£1,067) for an eight-day trip to Poland, when a fair market price was around 4,750 shekels (£845), according to the education ministry.
