DR KRISTIN SEMMENS, "TOURING THE NAZI PAST"
Much of Europe felt the imprint of the Nazi jackboot between 1933 and
1945. Focusing on different locations in Germany and Poland, Dr.
Semmens traces the rise and fall of Adolf Hitler's Third Reich. From the
Reichstag building in Berlin to the Fuehrer's retreat in the Bavarian
Alps, from the Krakow ghetto to the Auschwitz death camp, we will learn
about key moments in the history of German fascism which left traces on
the landscape still visible to travelers today.
