Our two 3-day, fully-guided, tours to Germany really can enhance the teaching and learning process for Pearson Edexcel’s GCSE History module ‘Weimar & Nazi Germany 1918-1939′ – and that’s not just our view. The itineraries for both having been endorsed by the exam board itself.
The Munich and Nuremberg tour begins by retracing the route of the 1923 Beer Hall Putsch and at locations en route we explore: the rise of Hitler; look at why National Socialism took hold in Bavaria; and examine the role of the SA, covering many of the themes in key topics 1 & 2. The tour includes a visit to the former Concentration Camp at Dachau where students will examine the establishment of the camp system; the role of the SS; the persecution of various groups and individuals; and the development of a police state (key topics 3.2 and 4.1). We then conclude in Nuremberg where, walking the Party Rally Ground and visiting the excellent Documentation Centre for Fascination and Terror, the group will look at how the Nazi party harnessed propaganda to achieve mass popularity and control culture (key topic 4.2).
For those who would prefer to travel to Berlin we start with a walking tour which includes sites such as the Lustgarten, the Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate and a guided tour of the excellent German Historical Museum, where we focus on themes such as; the origins of, and threats to, the Weimar Republic; where support for the NSDAP came from; how did Hitler become Chancellor? (key topics 1& 2). This is followed by a visit to the Sachsenhausen Memorial and the Topography of the Terrors, where we examine resistance to the Nazi’s and the experience of various groups and individuals persecuted by the Nazi regime (key topic 3) with the option of a guided tour of the former SA Prison in Papestrasse, site of an early concentration camp run by the SA Field Police in 1933.
