Holocaust Studies Tour, 2024, Day 6

Church, Work, and Play

On this Mother’s Day Sunday we first made time available for folks to attend a local service. Most students either went to the Berliner Dom (Lutheran) in the morning or an Anglican service that met in the early evening at nearby St. Mary’s (a Catholic church which changed to Lutheran post reformation). Confused yet? In early afternoon we made our way to the south central part of the city where we took in one of Berlin’s most visited museums, The Jewish Museum. Lastly, students found their way to various eating establishments – and a few brave souls went up the TV Tower (Fernsehturm). Pics in this order are below.

Tomorrow we rise early for a very full day. We visit the U.S. Embassy in the morning and then tour our first concentration camp memorial in the afternoon (Sachsenhausen).
