For those schools studying WJEC Eduqas non-British Depth Study Option 1G: Germany in Transition 1919-1939, Anglia is delighted to be able to offer a fully-guided 3-day tour to Berlin, which focuses in depth on the selected issues and themes included in this module.

The tour begins with a visit to the excellent German History Museum where your students will have the opportunity to examine the impact the First World War had on Germany and the challenges faced by the Weimar Republic. Your Anglia guide will then walk you through central Berlin and, at various locations such as the Lustgarten, Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag building, will explore the rise of the Nazi Party.

Your second day begins with a guided tour of the former Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp. Here we focus on how the Nazis began to consolidate power and how terror and persuasion were used to control all aspects of life. These are themes we then develop with visits later that afternoon culminating in a tour of the impressive stadium built to host the 1936 Olympic Games.

Your final day includes a chance to view the Trains to Life - Trains to Death Memorial, where we look at both the development of Nazi anti-semitic policies and the response to these in Germany and abroad; and the Topography of Terror exhibition, where we examine how terror was used by organisations such as the Gestapo and SS.

Each of the suggested visits has been carefully selected in order to ensure you cover the required content of this module and to give your students an opportunity to develop an awareness of how aspects of life in Germany between 1919-1939 have been represented and interpreted.
