The Nazis & the Holocaust School Trip to Berlin

Halsbury Sticker

A history school trip to Berlin offers your students the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the rise of National Socialism, life under the Nazi regime, the Holocaust and much, much more!

Berlin tells a unique story of imperial power, the birth and death of regimes, race and persecution and, eventually, stable democracy.

There are so many excellent historical sites and museums to visit in Berlin, from Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, to the Topographie of Terror and the Haus der Wannsee Konferenz. We’ll work closely with you to design an itinerary that is tailored perfectly to your learning objectives.
