Religious Studies trips to Berlin

Berlin was once home to one of the biggest and largely integrated Jewish community in Germany, students can gain deeper insights of the historical background of the Jewish population in early 20th Century Europe.

From the story of their persecution from the early 1930’s, to the tragic events of the Final Solution - there are a rich variety of sites dedicated to remembering and illustrating this turbulant period in history.

The German Resistance Memorial Centre is a permanent exhibition covering the struggle against and opposition to National Socialism in various forms, giving students an opportunity to learn about where the July Bomb Plot was organised.

The Anne Frank Memorial Museum tells the story of the famous diarist, with poignant illustrations of Jewish life in the 1930's. The Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp hosts a museum, memorial hall and cinema, which also acts as moving reminder of the evils of the Nazi regime.
