Berlin 2019

On the Friday before half-term, 27 students from Years 9-11 went on a history visit to Berlin. We flew from Heathrow airport and some of us had never been on a plane before! On the Friday night we visited the Reichstag which is the German Parliament. We went in the glass dome and saw Berlin by night. On Saturday, we went on a guided walking tour of the city and visited the Holocaust memorial.

We visited the Topography of Terror Museum and learned about the SS, Gestapo and concentration camps run by the Nazis. We also had a guided tour of the Stasi Museum where we learned about Communist Berlin and how the government spied on people. On Sunday, we visited the Sachsenhausen concentration camp. We then had a guided tour of the Olympic stadium and we visited the changing rooms, the press room and the VIP boxes. On Monday, we flew home to Heathrow airport. It was a really busy few days and we learnt so much.
