A history school trip to the WW2 battlefields in the Netherlands evokes a powerful picture of the time and ‘recounts’ events via personal accounts that will appeal directly to your students, as they’ll be able to identify with them!

Aside from the academic benefits of learning more about the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, this trip will also help your students to understand the real meaning of freedom, democracy and human rights.

Plus, your students will learn more about both the Allied and Nazi experience of the combat in Arnhem and Oosterbeek.
