Begin in the city of Nuremberg, Germany – home to the Nazi Party Rallies held annually from 1933 until the outbreak of World War II. Learn about Adolf Hitler’s Anti-Semitic Nuremberg Laws and the horrifying events that followed. This city was also home to the Nuremberg Trials from 1945 until 1948 which condemned a great number of Nazi war criminals by an international tribunal. It provided a future precedent of consequences for those who commit war crimes and violate human rights. Make your way over to the bustling metropolitan city of Berlin, where electronic music thrives and Wurst rules the day. Browse the world’s largest open-air gallery displaying the Berlin Wall, an expression of the city’s transition from the Cold War era to a period of reunification, reconciliation, and freedom for all. Explore Berlin Memorials, commemorating the past, the dark times of National Socialism and the division of the city.
Excite the senses in Poland with its scenic countryside landscapes, rich historical landmarks, and vibrant culture. Enjoy a walking tour of Old Warsaw completely rebuilt after facing deconstruction during World War II. Head to Krakow with its medieval town square surrounded by the country’s history etched into the townhouses, palaces, and churches. Visit the Former Nazi Concentration Camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau, known worldwide as the most notorious Nazi concentration camp, which will provide you with the most meaningful and impactful learning experience.
End your trip in Budapest, the city of contrast – one of the capital cities of the Austrio-Hungarian empire prior to World War I and part of the Eastern bloc following World War II. Experience the city’s rich history that is omnipresent no matter which corner you turn. Cross between the hilly Buda and the flat Pest, while embracing the city’s metropolitan character, full of trendy cafes and restaurants.
