Berlin’s Second World War and Cold War Stories, led by Andy Johnson

Throughout much of the 20th century Berlin was at the centre of the world’s attention. This special Remembrance Tour looks at the German capital in the lead up to and during the Second World War, and throughout the geopolitical tensions of the Cold War.

Through a series of fascinating visits to museums, historical sites and memorials we’ll follow Hitler’s rise to power and the establishment of the Third Reich, before exploring the pivotal role and importance of Berlin during the Second World War. We look at Nazi policy and uncover the horrors of the holocaust, and review the Allied bombing campaign and devastation it wreaked on the city. Visits to the battlefields of the 1945 Battle of Berlin give insight into the role of the Soviet Red Army, their march to Berlin and the ultimate fall of the city. Finally, we’ll explore why and how the Second World War led to the Cold War and look at extraordinary times when Berlin was a divided city.
