Half term trip to Berlin

Fifty Year 11 students visited Berlin during the half term break to support their GCSE History studies. The students visited a number of places of historical interest including the Brandenburg Gate, the seat of the German parliament - The Reichstag Building, and the Olympic Stadium, which was originally built for the Olympics Games in 1936. The students also had the opportunity to visit The Story of Berlin Museum, which is an interactive museum that explores 800 years of Berlin history.

The students visited The Topography of Terror, where the central institutions of Nazi persecution and terror were located between 1933 and 1945, which included the Secret State Police Office with its own “house prison,” the leadership of the SS, and the Reich Security Main Office.

The group also travelled from Berlin to visit the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp and museum. The students were able to benefit from this informative trip; no doubt their understanding of Berlin’s history was greatly enhanced as a result of this visit.
