Life in Nazi Germany and the Origins of The Cold War

Tour Introduction

For those students studying Pearson Edexcel’s GCSE History modules ‘Weimar & Nazi Germany 1918-1939′ and ‘Superpower relations and the Cold War, 1941–91′ Anglia is delighted to offer a selection of itineraries that have been endorsed by the examination board. These fully-guided tours will enhance the teaching and learning process for the related Pearson qualification.

Our 3-day fully-guided tour to Berlin begins in front of the Reichstag building where we explore the transition from Imperial Germany to Weimar Republic. Then with visits to sites such as the Sachsenhausen Memorial,  the Memorial to the Murdered Members of the Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate and the Bebelplatz, we will cover many of the themes included in key topics 1, 3 and 4 of this module. The second half of the 3-day tour includes key Cold War locations, such as the Cecilienhof Palace, the Allied Museum, Treptow Park Soviet Memorial and the Berlin Wall and Documentation Centre, where our guides will work with your students, exploring many of the themes covered in key topics 1 and  2 of the ‘Superpower Relations and the Cold War’ unit.

Our 5 and 6-day programmes both begin in Munich where we explore the rise of Hitler and look at the role of both the SA and SS. Then with visits to the Dachau Memorial and the city of Nuremberg, home of the Nazi Party Rallies, we then look at Nazi Control and Dictatorship (key topic 3) and Nazi control of culture (key topic 4.2). The tour culminates in Berlin where, in addition to much of the content included in the 3-day option, you will have a chance both to visit one of Berlin’s Cold War Civil Defence Shelters and a Nuclear Bunker, as well as experiencing a tour of the former Stasi Remand Prison in Hohenschoenhausen.

Endorsement of an itinerary and a tour does not cover any other resources produced by the Tour Operator to support the qualification or that will be used to deliver the tour. Whilst Pearson is satisfied that the itinerary and the tour itself are capable of enriching and supporting the achievement of the qualification, it is not essential for studying the qualification.
