Germany, Poland, and the Holocaust

Germany’s dark past, during Adolf Hitler’s reign of terror, is the focal point of this history lesson during the Germany Holocaust Tour. Go back to the locations where the Nazi regime made decisions that reshaped German society like Führerbunker (Hitler’s bunker), the Wannsee Conference, and the Documentation Center Nazi Party Rally Grounds in Nuremberg. Students will also visit numerous museums and memorials, like Sachsenhausen Memorial and Museum and the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, dedicated to sharing the lives and deaths of the Jewish people persecuted during that period. In Poland, students will also get to explore the history of Auschwitz and learn of how some Germans defied the Nazi regime at Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory.
