In the autumn 2015 IB history students will have the opportunity to travel to Berlin in cooperation with peers from Lappeenranta Lukio. Visits will include the Holocaust monument, Checkpoint Charlie, the Reichstag, the Museum of Terror, the Stauffenberg museum and a host of other key locations in the recent history of this city, so rich in symbolism. This trip is expected to add extra texture to the experience of learning twentieth century history and stimulate a much greater awareness of the recent German past.
