Program Description

Historic Travel Adventure to Normandy, Paris, Cologne, Berlin, Dresden and Prague
Normandy and Paris :
You will start your journey through time in France, on the beaches of Normandy, where the U.S. and its allies launched the greatest naval invasion in history, marking
a turning point in the bloodiest war known to man. You will relive these pivotal moments at the Omaha Beach Memorial and Museum, where one of the fiercest
battles took place, and at the memorial in Caen. We will then spend three days in Paris, a major center of European politics and culture, where students interested
in international relations will discuss the outbreak of the two World Wars, the Treaty of Versailles, and the origins of the European Community.
Cologne and Berlin
On the way to Berlin we will spend a day in Cologne (Köln), home to the world famous Köln Cathedral. This landmark miraculously escaped the heavy wartime bombing that left the rest of the city in ruins.
Dresden and Prague :
On our way to Prague, we will spend a day in Dresden, the capital of Saxony, sometimes referred to as the “Florence of the Elbe.” A city of elegance, architecture and art, it is home to the famous Dresden Art Gallery which houses Rafael’s Sistine Madonna. Dresden was also one of the German cities that sustained the heaviest allied bombing during WWII.
