Primary goals: to explore the experiences and memories of the people of Berlin during World War II.

  • Live at the ultra modern CIEE Global Institute in the central neighborhood of Kreuzberg.
  • Study social, cultural, and military history in the classroom, via digital resources, and at key historical sites.
  • Focus on German and Allied perspectives, with an emphasis on “everyday” experience of Berlin citizens during wartime.
  • Explore “historical memory” and the different ways that Berlin has memorialized the war.

Special considerations:

  • This program will be housed in the same student apartments for the entire 3 weeks.
  • The CIEE Global Institute has a small, in-house cafe and kitchen facilities on each floor.
