During the Easter holidays a group of GCSE History students and four of their History teachers set off together to Munich for a long weekend.
They did so with a variety of expectations - that they would have fun at times, that they would learn a lot to help in preparing for their Germany 1918-39 exam paper, but also knowing there would be some serious moments along the way as they visited places that had been affected by the infamous Nazi regime.
In the event, each of these expectations was fulfilled. The group took an historical tour of Munich, of Nuremberg, of Munich University and, most memorably, of Dachau Concentration Camp. However, there was also 'down time' spent in the hotel, a famous Beer Hall (drinking soft drinks) and the cinema. In each instance, the students were a credit to the Harrodian - behaving impeccably but exhibiting personality and each contributing to a great experience for the young and (relatively) old who attended!
