History Trip to Berlin

In February 2017 the History Department organised a 6th Form Trip to Berlin. The packed four-day schedule included visits to significant historical sites such as the Reichstag, Sachsenhausen concentration camp, a nuclear bunker and, of course, a preserved stretch of the infamous Berlin Wall. We also managed to visit multiple museums (including the German History Museum, the DDR Museum and the Museum of Spying), while still finding enough time for a bit of recreation, fine dining and numerous cups of coffee. For BHS historians, a trip to a city like Berlin is an opportunity to explore the past and be reminded that ‘what happened then matters now’.
