For students studying the impact of National Socialism on the German people there is no better venue than Hitler’s capital, Berlin - and no better way to see the city than on an Anglia trip to Berlin. Period architecture is still visible, from the former Air Ministry on Wilhelmstrasse to the impressive 1936 Olympic stadium, and with this backdrop your expert guide will bring alive the stories of those who lived under this cruel and oppressive regime.

At the brilliant Topography of Terror museum your students will learn how the Nazis controlled their own people through fear and terror, whilst the centerpiece of any tour of Berlin will be a half-day visit to the former Concentration Camp Sachsenhausen, where your guide will explore the reality of living under Nazi rule.

If your focus is resistance to the Nazis, a visit to the recently refurbished ‘Bendlerblock’, site of von Stauffenberg’s execution and a comprehensive permanent exhibition of resistance to Nazism, is an absolute must, whilst a walking tour of the city centre will include visits to memorials of several groups of victims of the Nazis.
