Foreword Imagine knowing little or no information about the role your relatives played in the First or Second World War – not an uncommon experience for many people of diaspora communities of former Commonwealth countries – only to complete that part of your family history while on a battlefield tour. This was the unintended experience of two Muslim sisters on the Remembering the Fallen tour in November last year with Anglia Tours and Forgotten Heroes 14-19 Foundation – details of which you will find at page 15. After seeing familiar names engraved on memorials, the sisters were inspired to probe the records of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, with the helpful assistance of an Anglia tour guide. Remarkably, they discovered where their grandmother’s brother served, fell and was buried. They immediately delivered the news to their elderly grandmother who, before then, believed that there were no formal records of her brother, that he must have died somewhere in Europe, and that he did not receive a proper burial. In fact, he served and was buried in Basra, Iraq during WW2 and his service record and family tree was sufficiently detailed that they could identify him with certainty. For these two sisters, taking the tour brought the reality of their relatives’ experience of, and contribution to, the Second World War to life. Consider then, as we approach the end of the Centenary of The Great War, the immense value of taking young people to see, touch and feel the undeniable records, cemeteries and memorials that display the true diversity of the war effort, while teaching them how soldiers and labourers of all backgrounds came together, as brothers-in-arms. Young Muslims, Jews, Sikhs, Hindus and others – who are increasingly exposed to divisive narratives that question their identity and belonging in Europe today – will find the confidence to say “yes, we were there too!”, equipping them with the knowledge to challenge those who deny the role that their ancestors played towards the history and security of the continent in which they live. As Anglia Tours Chairman, Colonel Alain Chissel recognises in his introduction, while the Remembering the Fallen tour is especially important for Muslims, learning about our shared heritage it isn’t solely for Muslims – and Remembering the Fallen highlights the contributions of more than just the Muslims’ contributions. Young indigenous Europeans will learn of the heroic bravery and compassion of decorated soldiers and labourers of different backgrounds, nations, cultures and beliefs, who came to the aid of the Allies in a war that was not of their own making. The team at Anglia Tours understands the value of taking children out of the classroom to bring history to life, while giving them rewarding and meaningful experiences. And at Forgotten Heroes 14-19 Foundation, we believe we can inspire a new dialogue which promotes understanding, respect and social cohesion based on the original documents that we have discovered. You can’t put a price on that. It is an absolute pleasure working with Anglia Tours. We could not have found a more inspiring, committed, passionate and professional group of people to collaborate with. Without hesitation, I commend Anglia Tours for the invaluable work that they do, and wholeheartedly recommend that schools and groups of all faiths and none engage with them. Hayyan Bhabha

Introduction

Curriculum Relevance At Anglia Tours our starting point is to ask what course of studies your students are following and what you want to achieve from a tour. We will then offer a programme designed and planned specifically to support this. So whether you are teaching Key Stage 3 History, AS and A2, or the new GCSE specifications which were introduced in September 2016 you can be confident that your students will get a tour that is engaging, fun and above all relevant. Our approach has been endorsed by the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom and we are the first UK Schools’ Tours Operator to offer itineraries which have specifically been endorsed by a UK Exam Board.

Introduction Welcome to our 2018-2019 brochure for schools. The first thing to say is that, twelve months on from joining the Next Generation Travel Group, there have been none of the teething problems often associated with change. It was, and is, a perfect fit as far as we are all concerned, allowing us to progress onto the next stage of our development as a company by giving us the additional expertise of a wellestablished travel group and access to all of their considerable resources. There are a lot of events to highlight for this coming year – not least the continued endorsement by Pearson Edexcel, of the itinerary for our Surgery and Treatment tour. Designed specifically to support those studying their GCSE History Option: The British Sector of the Western Front 1914-18: injuries, treatment and the trenches. “The trip was educational gold” Reeds School We are pleased to announce that another of our tour itineraries, a walking tour which focuses on Whitechapel: crime, policing and the inner city, has just been endorsed by Pearson Edexcel. This means that Anglia is the only school tour operator in the UK to have two of its itineraries endorsed by an Examination Board – an outstanding achievement.

The major highlight for us this year is the Forgotten Heroes 1914 – 1919 programme. You will have read the foreword by Hayyan Bhabha, Executive Director of The Muslim Experience in World War 1 and Co-Founder of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on British Muslims. The tour is not solely for Muslim faith schools. Although especially important to them, it is relevant to all schools. From a personal perspective I feel that this tour could go some way to help communities understand their shared heritage and to build bridges during these troubled times. The narrative that some 400,000 Muslims served under the British flag in WW1 is oft forgotten, not just by non-Muslims but amongst the Muslim community here in the UK. There is a shared history of comradeship, courage and endurance that needs to be told across the different communities and to ensure that young people from whatever faith or no faith understand the contribution made and its relevance today. As ever, for Anglia, our guiding team is perhaps our greatest strength. All guides go through a rigorous selection and training process that takes twelve months. Guides undergo a validation process in their first twelve months with the company and then every two years going forward. This validation process not only involves checking the quality of the educational content they deliver to your students but also their abilities as Tour Managers, ensuring every aspect of your tour runs smoothly. We involve teachers in this process and take their recommendations and comments very seriously – it all helps to improve our product and its delivery to you, our customers. It only remains for me to say that I look forward to meeting you either on a consultation visit, at an evening presentation or on tour either as a guide or a validator.

Delivering an Exceptional Educational Experience Anglia’s team consists of dedicated Tour Coordinators and administrative staff who have more than a hundred years of experience in travel between them – and they are on hand to assist, guide and support you throughout your tour from inception to conclusion.

Experience and Expertise

Easy to Use

Whether you are running a 1-day battlefield trip, a residential visit to Krakow or an enrichment tour to Berlin, we know that to deliver the exceptional educational experience, we need to have a clear understanding of exactly what it is you are looking for. Our team is perfectly placed to offer a selection of bespoke fully-guided tours designed to meet your specific requirement.

Taking students out of school involves a fair degree of work but our team will be there to support you throughout the booking process. We can advise you on your travel options to help make the most of the time you have available; offer advice on passports and visas and even help with risk assessments. So when the trip departs you can sit back and enjoy the experience.

Value for Money

6

Security

We know the importance of keeping within your budget. We also appreciate you may need to get quotes from 3 different companies. Our Tour Coordinators can work with you to deliver a tour which offers real value for money not one which, at first sight, appears to be cheaper. Together you can consider the available options, design an itinerary which best suits your needs and which doesn’t have any hidden costs.

Booking a tour with Anglia provides you with financial security. We are a member of ABTA and the flights and flight-inclusive packages we offer are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. We are an assured member of the School Travel Forum (STF) and the holder of the prestigious Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge. We also include as standard, travel insurance specifically tailored to the needs of educational groups.

Safety

Engagement

We know there are many factors that can influence a tour and that sometimes, despite thorough planning, things may not go to plan. In the unlikely event this should happen, with Anglia you won’t have to rely on just a UK based helpline. As our guide will be with you throughout your tour you will have support on-hand, someone you can quite literally turn to if you need assistance. You really could not be in safer hands.

Our aim is to engage, inspire and enthuse each and every student with whom we work. We want to give students every chance not only to take in what their guide is telling them but to allow time and space for personal reflection. To help achieve this our team can suggest a range of alternative sites, places which lie away from the crowded locations used by most other companies, places with stories to tell and time and space to take them in.

Excellent support, always at the end of the phone or email - I can’t thank her enough for going above and beyond. East Bergholt High School It was the best experience of my life and I will never forget all the amazing memories I have made. Student at Melksham Oak Community School I could not have coped with the level of admin on top of my teaching workload without her. Haringey 6th Form The advice and support I received when booking and running this trip was invaluable. As a teacher there is a lot of pressure when leading a school trip and so I would like to add my most sincere thanks as at no point during the organisation of or on the actual day of the trip did I feel worried; everything I needed was provided and everyone I have dealt with at Anglia has provided the highest level of customer service and support. I am incredibly grateful. Chestnut Grove Academy I have been delighted with the service from Anglia from start to finish; it made the process of organising the Tour easy, staff have always been helpful and very professional, and your services have certainly been beneficial to our students. Dean Close School I just have to say that I don’t think that the girls have ever enjoyed a school trip so much. They were so enthusiastic and had obviously found the whole experience incredibly moving. Thank you for all your hard work! Parent of pupil at Sydenham High School for Girls

10 Reasons to take a Guided History Tour with Anglia 1. Experience counts

6. Provide additional support to you

With over 240 combined years of teaching experience and 325 years of guiding school groups, our guides will work in partnership with you to deliver the perfect educational experience.

We know being responsible for students on a trip is a 24 hours a day job. So let our guides take some of the pressure off you. They will navigate, liaise with drivers, restaurants and hotels so you can step back and enjoy watching your students be inspired by what they see and hear.

2. Your safety is our priority Our guides are there, not just to work with your students, but to ensure the safety of the group throughout the tour. With backgrounds in the Military, Police & Teaching they can deal with any issues which arise - so you and your students really couldn’t be in safer hands. 3. Amazing, inspiring guides Our guides have the proven ability to engage with students – not simply talk at them. Using a range of quotes, images and period equipment they are adept at adjusting their delivery style to meet the differing learning needs of each student. 4. Do more in less time Our guides are frequent visitors to the places they lead tours to which means they have excellent up to date knowledge. So if a road is closed, a new museum open or major event planned they will be the first to know. 5. We deliver human stories Our guides use human stories to help your students make that vital connection with the sites they are visiting. So whether they are standing with their mates in a front line trench waiting to ‘go over the top’ or sat in Berlin’s Olympic Stadium waiting for the starting pistol and a chance to see Jesse Owens in the Final of the Men’s 100 metres, the ‘penny drop’ moments are endless.

7. A pre-trip visit to your school We will visit your school to discuss your educational objectives and agree a programme which delivers these. We will also offer to deliver a pre-tour presentation to parents which provides real reassurance and a chance to see what they are getting for their money. 8. Support materials We can provide you with booklets to use before, during and after your tour. Our guides deliver kit demonstrations, use images, quotes and documents to help your develop students’ understanding of events. 9. Personalised research If you know of former pupils who were involved in either World War or your students have relatives they would like to know more about, let us know in advance and our guides can research these individuals or the units they served with. We can then tell their stories on the ground they trod. 10. Detailed subject knowledge With backgrounds in research, teaching, writing and film making our guides have developed a wonderful depth of knowledge, knowledge they are passionate about sharing and with which enables them to challenge your students to look at history from a range of different perspectives.

The best part of the tour for me was the manner in which the guides and the office staff dealt with the challenges posed by the transport issues resulting from the weather. St Teresa’s Why would we travel with anyone else when you dealt with this situation so effectively and without any fuss or bother whatsoever. Misbourne School My colleagues couldn’t believe how fantastic it is having a guide ...it relieves us of all stress. St George’s School It has been superb to work with Anglia again on this tour - I knew that it would, but the experience underlined the reasons why I will be more than happy to work with Anglia again. Wellsway School The tour was brilliant, everything that was laid on for us, Dickie’s equipment and his knowledge were just brilliant. We got so much in to the day and the kids really enjoyed it. I have already put in for next year’s ‘Super Learning Day’ It was just brilliant having the experts too, the depth that added was incredible. St Clements [He] was an amazing guide and without him this trip would not have been as successful, his knowledge is outstanding and the props he brought with him really brought the tour to life.

Medicine Endorsement Statement This itinerary has been reviewed by the awarding body to confirm that it suitably enhances the teaching and learning process for the related Pearson qualification. A Pearson subject representative has attended the associated tour to ensure that its content meets the requirements of the qualification it is aimed at and to confirm that it is suitable for the intended audience of the qualification. The review confirms that the itinerary and the tour support the content of this qualification and that the locations covered in each visit and the key outcomes to be delivered as part of each visit enrich the overall learning experience of the course or part of the course it is aimed at. Endorsement does not cover the Tour Operator nor does it cover the suitability of the individual tour guide who delivers the itinerary on the day. The delivery of the tour and individual experience of the tour are not the responsibility of Pearson; participants are referred to the Tour Operator’s confirmation of booking for further information including pricing structures. Endorsement of an itinerary and a tour does not cover any other resources produced by the Tour Operator to support the qualification or that will be used to deliver the tour. Whilst Pearson is satisfied that the itinerary and the tour itself are capable of enriching and supporting the achievement of the qualification, it is not essential for studying the qualification. The official specification is the only authoritative source in respect of the qualification content and should be used for definitive guidance to ensure that all learning objectives are fulfilled.

Designed specifically to provide an engaging and relevant introduction to the warfare context and historical environment of Medicine on the Western Front, Anglia is the only School Tours Operator to be able to offer a selection of itineraries, for both one and two-day tours, all of which have been formally endorsed by Pearson Edexcel. The structure of these fully-guided tours allows students to follow the Chain of Evacuation from the front line, through a Regimental Aid Post and Advanced Dressing Station, to a Casualty Clearing Station and beyond. Making use of a selection of contemporary sources, including personal testimonies and photographs we look in detail at the experience of a soldier as well as the roles of stretcher bearers, medical officers, doctors, nurses and padres.

Tour Resources Kit Demonstration: Each of our Surgery and Treatment tours features both hands-on exercises designed to aid students in understanding the practical limitations which the environment had on those seeking to treat the sick and wounded as well as an in-depth, guide-led, demonstration of a selection of the medical equipment which was available to medical personnel during the Great War. Resource Booklet: Each student who travels with us on this tour is given a copy of a brand new resource booklet, designed specifically to support the learning objectives. Not only does it mirror the tour programme but it contains some wonderful illustrations and extremely useful infographics.

We examine the nature of trench systems and trench warfare to consider: how conditions in the trenches led directly to issues of ill-health; how fatigue and hours spent in the open exacerbated wounds; and more particularly how these factors affected those seeking to treat both the sick and the wounded. We look at the various modes of transport available to move men back down the line and consider the impact which developments such as blood transfusions and x-rays had on reducing the number of fatalities. Whether you choose the one or two day programme your students with a unique and thoroughly engaging experience.

The poverty and misery experienced by many of those who lived in Whitechapel at the end of the 19th Century has fascinated writers and historians for more than a hundred years. It was an environment in which new and radical political ideas led to unrest and where petty and serious crime, fuelled by alcohol, drove the need for more organised policing. For those studying Pearson Edexcel’s Historic Environment of Whitechapel c1870-1900, Anglia is delighted to offer a fully-guided walking tour of the murky netherworld bordering the City of London and the East End – a tour, the itinerary for which, has this year been formally endorsed by Pearson Edexcel as an appropriate introduction to the Crime and Punishment Historical Environment. The tour will consider themes such as the problems of housing and overcrowding, the lack of employment opportunities and level of poverty, the settlement of immigrants from Ireland and Eastern Europe, pressures caused by the increase in Jewish immigration during the 1880s and the tendency towards segregation. Consideration will be given to the problems caused by alcohol, prostitution, protection rackets, gangs, violent demonstrations and attacks on Jews, and the difficulties of policing the slum area of Whitechapel, with its rookeries, alleys and courts, allowing students to establish links between the environment and crime. Focussing on the case study of the Jack the Ripper case, the tour will include a detailed examination of investigative policing in Whitechapel, taking in developments in techniques of detective investigation, including the use of sketches, photographs and interviews.

Thematic study: Warfare and British Society War and British Society Britain, Europe and the Wider World: 1901 Present Day Britain at War The Impact and Experience of war in Britain The Changing Nature of Warfare Warfare Through Time

The new generation of GCSE specifications require students to study a broad sweep of British history, understand change and continuity across that span and develop an understanding of the nature and process of change. For those following Thematic studies which focus on Warfare and British Society Anglia Tours is uniquely placed to offer fully-guided tours which combine visits to familiar battlefield locations such as Agincourt, Waterloo, Ypres, the Somme and Normandy allowing students to compare and contrast certain themes at different points in history. Themes covered could include the recruitment and training of troops, the impact on warfare of new technology and weaponry, the impact of warfare on civilians and the role of key individuals. Over the course of the tour students will be able to analyse in depth how strategy, tactics and combat changed as new weapons entered the battlefield, and how commanders responded to these challenges. From the longbow of Agincourt, and the massed muskets of Waterloo, to the static trenches, rifles, machine guns and artillery of the Great War and Total War a generation later, the tour will allow students the opportunity to develop their understanding of how warfare changed across a broad span of time. Pearson Edexcel London and the Second World War, 1939-45: For those studying Pearson Edexcel’s Historic Environment London and the Second World War, 1939-45, Anglia can offer a one-day tour exploring the streets of the City which explores how the nation’s capital dealt with an unprecedented threat and terrifying reality.

Battlefield Studies For those who can extend the duration of their battlefield trip beyond two days, an Anglia Battlefield Study Tour is the most educationally valuable tour available. Your dedicated Tour Coordinator will work closely with you to produce a programme which meets your specific educational requirements. You could, for example: ƒƒ

Study the tactical and technological developments which were brought in as the war progressed, deployed in the offensives of 1918 and led ultimately to the Allied victory in 1918

ƒƒ Look at how the British experience on the Western Front changed from 1914 to 1918 ƒƒ Consider how the role of the Generals has been portrayed since the Great War ƒƒ Examine the civilian experience of both those on the Home Front and those living in occupied Europe

Our Battlefield Study Tours also allow for a more relaxing trip with more time spent at each location visited.

We feel the trip is a superb experience for our boys. I asked the staff who travelled with us for some comments or feedback and one of them replied that the trip was ‘educational gold’.

Remembering the Fallen

2018 will see the culmination of events marking the Centenary of the First World War. Whilst it will, quite rightly, be commemorations planned for 11 November which attract national and international attention we should not overlook those actions which saw the British Army recover from near defeat to eventual victory. Anglia’s 1918 Centenary tour starts by looking at the German Spring Offensive, the Kaiserschlacht, which saw the deepest advances by either side since the opening year of the war. We then consider developments in tactics and technology employed in the Allied advance which eventually led to the moment when the guns finally fell silent. With visits to Villers-Brentonneux, Riqueval Bridge and the Somme American Cemetery, this fascinating one-day tour follows the events of 1918 from the German advance through to the breaking of the Hindenburg Line. Topics covered include the development of All Arms Warfare, the entry of the United States into the Great War, the Treaty of Versailles and much more.

Thank you for your patience and being so helpful.  We are looking forward to the 100th anniversary trip and the usual excellent experience shared with Anglia. Farlington School

This fully-guided, two-day educational tour is the concept of the Forgotten Heroes 14-19 Foundation and explores the shared experiences of Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Sikh and Hindu soldiers who fought united, side-by-side while accommodating each other’s cultures, music, gastronomy and religious practices, despite the difficulties of life in the trenches. It also showcases original photographs and documents recorded in English, French, Urdu, Arabic and Farsi during The Great War, including personal diaries and letters that did not make it home. Designed to encourage dialogue and social cohesion by building bridges of peace and understanding between people of different nations, cultures, religions and beliefs, while promoting the values of tolerance and mutual respect, this initiative has the support of faith leaders, politicians and public servants from the United Kingdom and across the world.

Each Anglia Development of Warfare tour is led by an experienced guide, selected for their depth of historical knowledge, their ability to draw out and illustrate key themes across a series of military engagements and, more particularly for their aptitude for engaging with young people. From Roman warfare right up to the present day, we have guides who can bring to life the developments in weaponry, army organisation and training, communication, medical provision, strategy, tactics and combat.

Sample tour: Waterloo, Ypres and Dunkirk This tour begins at Waterloo, the greatest single-day battle in European history, where the Grand Armies of the early modern age were seen for the last time, as mass infantry and cavalry charges met concentrated artillery and volley fire from massed ranks of canons and muskets. We then move to Flanders and the Great War where we explore how, one hundred years later, the Great Powers responded to industrial firepower. Here we examine this relatively new and unexpected form of warfare and the challenges it posed, considering the realities of trench warfare and the new technologies and tactics designed to break the stalemate. The tour concludes by following the route taken by British troops as they retreated to Dunkirk, stopping along the way to consider the evolution of the Blitzkrieg theory and the success it brought in 1940.

The Blitz & the Home Front

In the summer of 1944, four years after being dramatically expelled from the European mainland, Allied forces returned in the largest and most audacious amphibious military operation ever attempted – Operation Overlord, the D-Day landings. The stories of courage and sacrifice, of slaughter and suffering, have seeped into our consciousness in the decades that have passed since those remarkable days in 1944, and deserve to be told as the surviving veterans reach old age.   Anglia’s expert guides will bring to life the experience of scared and confused airborne troops landing in the dark, lost and off-target far behind enemy lines; of untried civilian soldiers witnessing the carnage on the beaches of Normandy and of the men asked to enter combat with some of the oddest and most imaginative inventions of modern warfare. Our D-Day tours are tailored to your individual needs, allowing you to focus on the parts of the story most relevant to your students, whether that be a particular aspect of the operation, the experience of the fighting man, or the uniforms, weapons and equipment used.

Specimen itinerary ƒƒ Pegasus Bridge: The use of airborne troops; glider landings of the Ox & Bucks Light Infantry ƒƒ Merville Battery: assault of 9th Battalion, The Parachute Regiment ƒƒ St Mere-Eglise: Capture of the town by US Airborne Infantry ƒƒ Pointe du Hoc: How did 2nd US Ranger Battalion, capture this German battery? ƒƒ Omaha Beach: The largest D-Day assault area stretching over 6 miles ƒƒ St Laurent US Cemetery: The Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial ƒƒ La Cambe: One of six German cemeteries in Normandy, burial place of Michael Wittmann (The Black Baron) ƒƒ Arromanches: The design and use of Mulberry Harbours ƒƒ Circular ‘360’ cinema ƒƒ Gold Beach - CSM Stan Hollis VC ƒƒ Juno Beach: Hobart’s ‘Funnies’ ƒƒ Ranville CWGC: Commemoration and conclusion

I’m very thankful that you gave the experience of going around Normandy. The things you taught us gave me a different insight on how the war went and the sacrifices people made for our future. I’ll remember this trip for the rest of my life. Pupil at Bishop Heber School

Europe between the wars Tsarism, Revolution and Communism in Russia

In the 150 years since Unification, Germany, and in particular Berlin, has experienced almost continual change. Whether through revolution, democracy, or the sheer will of the people, the transitions from Empire to Republic; Fascist Dictatorship to Soviet Occupation; Partition to Reunification, have all left their mark on the city and its people. Each Anglia tour to Berlin provides your group with the perfect opportunity to explore modern German history. With flights available from a range of UK airports your dedicated Tour Coordinator will work closely with you to produce a programme that meets your specific educational requirements and includes visits to key sites. You might want to: take a tour of the Reichstag building once again the seat of German Government; visit the site of the former Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp; explore the Cecilienhof, site of the post-war Potsdam conference; walk along Bernauer Strasse and trace the former course of the Berlin Wall - there is simply so much to see and do.

Road to Power For those studying the rise to power of the NSDAP Anglia is able to offer a range of bespoke fully-guided school history trips all of which examine how, in just over a decade, the Nazi Party managed to grow from a provincial right wing group to undisputed ruler of the German state. Our two centre Munich and Nuremberg programmes offer the opportunity to: retrace the route of the 1923 Putsch; visit the former Concentration Camp of Dachau and explore the extraordinary party rally grounds in Nuremberg to examine how the party harnessed propaganda to achieve mass popularity. Alternatively, over 4 or 5-days you can follow the path taken by the NSDAP from its origins in the beer halls of Bavaria, through to its accession to power in Berlin. This longer tour offers a chance to: consider how the Party and its leader changed after 1933; examine the widespread use of terror and look at the experience of those persecuted by the Nazi regime.

Cold War Berlin

Berlin is the perfect location for those wishing to study the impact National Socialism had on Germany and those living in it – and there is no better way to explore Berlin than on an Anglia guided tour. Key visits include: an extended walking tour of the city centre, taking in the Reichstag building, Brandenburg Gate and the series of memorials commemorating those persecuted by the Nazis; a comprehensive guided tour of the former Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp site; a tour of the stadium designed and built for the 1936 Olympics; a visit to the Topography of Terror, former headquarters of the Gestapo and SS. With the option of flying from various UK airport or travelling out by coach there are so many possibilities so why not speak with one of our expert Tour Coordinators who will be able to help you with every aspect of your tour.

The tour guides were fantastic… The students must have said something to their parents and the texts to my phone started coming in late last night all saying how their children enjoyed the trip and they found the guided tours very informative indeed.

Life in the GDR

Almost 30 years on there may be little left of the wall which once divided the city, but despite this Berlin remains the place to visit if you are looking to gain a deeper understanding of the Cold War. Our team of expert Berlin guides, many of whom saw military service in the city during the Cold War, have an in-depth knowledge which means we can take you to locations that other tour operators may not offer. Whether your focus is the: onset of the Cold War; the Blockade and the Airlift; the construction of the Berlin Wall; life under the Communist regime; the fall of the Wall and the path to reunification we can deliver the perfect tour to support your chosen GCSE and A level courses. Alternatively if you’re looking for a wider enrichment tour to one of Europe’s most dynamic and exciting cities having an Anglia guide with you throughout means you really could not be in safer hands.

The German Democratic Republic was born of the partition of Germany imposed at the end of the Second World War. The former Soviet Occupation Zone comprised 40% of post-war German territory in which lived, at its inception, 18 million people. It was a state that would see its population fall by over 2 million over the 40 years of its existence. Anglia’s fully-guided Life in the GDR tour to Berlin examines life in the ‘socialist nation-state of workers and peasants’ better known as East Germany. Visits will examine: ƒƒ Everyday life in the GDR ƒƒ Popular support for the SED ƒƒ The Stasi, its methods and activities ƒƒ The role of the FDJ ƒƒ Western influences, Willy Brandt and the impact of Ostpolitik ƒƒ Collapse of the GDR and reunification

Both [guides] were absolutely superb. Could not have been more accommodating and their knowledge is unparalleled.

[His] professionalism and engagement with the students is absolutely fantastic. They hang on to his every word!

At the very heart of Hitler’s regime lay the belief that only those of German blood could be citizens and that nonGermans had no call on the rights of citizenship. The racial policies introduced by the Nazi regime led to the persecution, expulsion, imprisonment and ultimately extermination of millions of people across Germany and subsequently occupied Europe. Our fully-guided Holocaust visits are designed specifically to help further understanding of this most difficult of subjects. Each is highly thought-provoking and will leave your students with lifechanging memories.

Road to the Holocaust

Auschwitz and Krakow

From the sites of Jewish homes, schools and community buildings in the German capital, to southern Poland where so many met their fate, this tour follows the process and the journey by which so many of Europe’s Jews perished at the hands of the Nazi regime.

Anglia has been organising school trips to Krakow and Auschwitz for over 18 years. Each visit is accompanied by an experienced guide chosen for their expert subject knowledge and ability to help further your students’ understanding of this most emotive of subjects.

Exploring the roots of Jewish life in Germany, the tour will also visit sites connected to the genesis of the Holocaust: The Topography of Terror, where Nazi policy towards the Jews was orchestrated, the House of the Wannsee Conference, where the mechanics of the Final Solution were discussed, and railway stations from which many of the victims were deported.

With flights available from a number of UK airports we will work closely with you to design a programme which meets your precise needs. On each tour we would recommend you look to include:
