This trip offers participants a unique and memorable experience focusing on important landmarks and historical sites central to understanding the Nazi period and World War II, culminating in the Holocaust. Beginning in Berlin, the program works its way through the complex history of this remarkable city, highlighting WWI, The Weimar Republic, the Nazi era, Jewish life in the city before, during and after the Holocaust, and ending with the Cold War and its aftermath. The group then moves to Poland visiting monuments and memorials that commemorate the once thriving Jewish cultural centers in Warsaw, Krakow, Lublin and Lodz that were destroyed during WW II. They walk through the death camps of Treblinka, Majdanek and Auschwitz-Birkenau where life ended for millions, as well as visit historic locations marking acts of resistance and rescue. The group also has the opportunity to visit important new museums in Berlin and Warsaw, "taste" a bit of local culture and color and see how Germany and Poland are attempting to come to terms with their pasts.
