The Rise of the Nazi State – Tour to Nuremberg and Berlin
7 days/4 night from only £339pp
This tour is particularly aimed at groups who are studying the rise of the Nazi party to its total control of Germany.
In Nuremberg, the Documentation Centre shows the manipulation of the huge pre-War rallies. You will have a guided walking tour of the grounds where the SS and SA paraded, which brings the reality of the rallies into sharp perspective.
Berlin offers a number of sites and exhibitions, which explain the rise of the Nazis and the elimination of opposition. You will see how the SA and SS empires grew and how a population, which had been largely anti-Nazi in the elections, had their resistance broken.
