Berlin, Dresden, Munich, Rothenburg, Heidelberg, with extension to Strasbourg
The powerful forces of history come into focus in every part of Germany. Berlin’s Checkpoint Charlie Museum recalls decades of Cold War division.

And at Dachau, the concentration camp serves as a stark reminder of the darkest chapter in this country’s long story.
