This year GCSE history students visited Berlin on the 13th February. Year 10 and 11 students visited many historical sites, the highlights were: the Berlin Wall, Sachsenhausen concentration camp memorial and the former Berlin Olympic Stadium.
We interviewed a year 10 student on her experiences in Berlin:
“What did you most enjoy about the Berlin trip?”
A~ I enjoyed learning new things that I wouldn’t have necessarily found out from a teacher or a textbook.
“What was the hardest part of the trip?”
A~ The hardest part of the trip was going to the concentration camp memorial because everything you learn about the Holocaust becomes real. You can picture everything.
