10 or 11 days
London, Paris, Amsterdam, with Normandy extension

What was it like to be a civilian living in a European capital city during the Second World War? To protect your house with sandbags and blackout curtains during the London Blitz, or struggle through daily life watching as your country and countrymen fall to Nazi rule in occupied Holland and France. As you travel through these resilient capitals, explore the different perspectives and difficult decisions of those who faced this reality—living with clothing and food rations, bolstering community morale, and fighting in the resistance against a powerful enemy.
