Poland/Germany 2016

Day 7

Posted: 18 July 2016

Day 7 was another day in which we visited various sites associated with the Nazis and the Holocaust. We spent the morning looking around Sachsenhausen concentration camp and then visited the Olympic stadium built by the Nazis for the 1936 Olympic Games. However the visit to the Villa where the Wansee conference took place was the most chilling of all. It was here that the lawyers and bureaucrats of the Nazi regime met to finalise plans for the Final Solution. Genocide by the seaside.

Day 6

It’s day 6 and we spent 12 hours walking around Berlin visiting sites mainly associated with the Cold War. You can see some pics below of a section of the Berlin Wall as well as Checkpoint Charlie and the Brandenburg Gate.

Day 5

Day 5 and we arrived in Berlin just in time for a group photo in front of the Reichstag just as the sun was setting.
