For much of the Twentieth Century Berlin lay the heart of world affairs. It was here that the Second World War was planned and the annihilation of Europe’s Jewish population was designed, organised and driven. As a city divided along ideological fault lines, for more than 40 years it was a powder key just waiting for the spark which would ignite the Cold War.
Anglia’s 3-day Nazi Germany and Cold War tours begin in front of the Reichstag building where we explore the transition from Imperial Germany to Weimar Republic. With visits to sites such the memorials to those persecuted by the Nazis, to the Bebelplatz and the former Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp we look at how the Nazis seized and consolidated power across Germany.
The second half of the programme focusses on post-war Berlin. Visits to the Cecilienhof Palace, the Allied Museum, Treptow Park Soviet Memorial and the Berlin Wall and Documentation Centre, will help your students navigate their way through the complexities of the Cold War right up to the fall of the Wall in 1989.
Its easy sometimes to say oh yeah it was a brilliant trip and the company are good, but you guys, really, really do step it up!
