S3 History pupils enjoyed flying out to Berlin last month to learn about the Cold War. Here, Emma shares her experiences of the trip:
“Berlin was a trip to remember! 23 pupils went to some of the most famous parts of the city including a WW2 underground air-raid shelter, the DDR Museum, the Stasi Museum, and the Reichstag.
“I will never forget the Allied Museum where we saw one of the most famous RAF planes, the Hastings, which is very important to me as my grandpa flew one of those planes when travelling to Christmas Island, in Cuba.
“I also enjoyed the walking tours we went on as we were able to see many of the city’s most famous sites, including the Brandenburg Gate, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and the site of Hitler's former bunker.
“Our tour guide Nick was amazing. He was able to tell us all about the history of the city as well as stories from those who experienced the Cold War.
“Overall, I found Berlin to be one of my most favourite trips I have ever been on and I found the whole experience to be incredible.”
