2020 Inside The Third Reich
WW2: Germany At War
August 27 - September 12, 2020 (17 days)
Germany … a nation that has given us Einstein, Beethoven, the jet engine, beer and picturesque Rhine castles – is equally remembered for Hitler and the devastation of Europe.
What was life like under Nazi rule and how did it all happen? Explore the dichotomy that was Germany. Venture into the majestic mountain scenery of the upper Rhine, and walk the romantic Baltic seaside. Visit cities that bore the weight of the bombing campaign, and ponder the despair of those who suffered in the infamous camps such as Dachau and Nordhausen. Delve into the Nazi war machine and its ambitions for a new world order – and learn how it all came to a crashing end with the apocalyptic final battle for Berlin.

Who would wear the crown? Mary Queen of Scots or Elizabeth? Lancaster or York? Or Arthur? Did Robin Hood really exist? Was Macbeth a real person or did Shakespeare invent him? And Merlin - was he real or “such stuff as dreams are made of?” Britain is a land of fact, myth and magic. Stonehenge, Guy Fawkes, Magna Carta, Hadrian's Wall, Loch Ness, The Tower of London - each have their place in this storied history.
