9 or 12 days
Amsterdam and Germany

The Second World War eventually came to an end, and the lives and nations it tore apart were left to pick up the pieces. In Germany and Holland, you’ll gain a better understanding of the impact war has on a country and its people, and the implications that can have at a local and global level. Learn more about the atrocities committed during the war, crimes that had until then never been defined, and how this changed international peace-keeping efforts. Consider the events from multiple perspectives, and get insight into what led a nation down this dark path—and how we can all work to create a brighter future.
