Study Visit to Berlin, 03 – 06 April 2018
This programme consists of a study visit to the city of Berlin, in Germany, the country where National Socialism originated. Berlin was the seat of Nazi power through the years of the Third Reich, 1933-1945. The study visit to Berlin would have particular appeal to teachers as well as being attractive to anyone with an interest in modern European history.
It includes an overview of Jewish Berlin and its history and there are also visits to Holocaust sites. Working with Holocaust scholars and educators, the programme allows participants to grasp the enormity of the Holocaust and its resonances within the city.
The study visit includes:
- Tour of the Berlin Jewish Museum
- The Topography of Terror Exhibition
- Walking tour with a focus of Jewish historical sites and commemoration of Nazi victims
- Memorial for the murdered Jews of Europe
- House of the Wannsee Conference
- Grunewald Deportation Site
- Sachenhausen concentration camp
- The Anne Frank Center
- The Otto Weidt House
- The Silent Heroes Memorial Center
Hard going at times but well worth it. This study visit demonstrated the banality of the perpetrators that is at the heart of this subject and its relevance today. If we stop caring, anything is possible.
The study visit was extremely worthwhile and valuable in expanding my knowledge and understanding of the Holocaust.
This programme gave me the “nuts and bolts” of the Final Solution and showed the origins of National Socialism. It demonstrated how evil begins in a small way and can be built up to outcomes such as the Holocaust.
