Optional sightseeing venue; combined with visit to the German Spy Museum
This optional sightseeing visit to the DDR Museum will give participants a window into the life of the citizens of the Deutsche Demokratische Republik, aka the DDR, aka the German Democratic Republic, aka East Germany. The museum has numerous exhibits about day-to-day life behind the Berlin Wall, including on music, family life, youth culture, transportation (don’t miss the Trabants!), and surveillance from the infamous Stasi. This visit is combined with a visit to the German Spy Museum, for a further chance to investigate the history of East Germany.
Students not going to Sachsenhausen will visit the Jewish Museum, DDR Museum, and German Museum of Technology that day instead as well.
