Day one consists of flying overnight to Germany. Then on day two and three students will take a walking tour of Berlin and will visit the Jewish museum and many other places.

Students get to take a train to Warsaw and tour the ghetto on day four and five. The POLIN Museum will also be toured while in Warsaw.

Next will be a visit to Krakow. This is the only major Polish city that was not destroyed during World War II. This left the architecture of its town intact.

On day six and seven Auschwitz and Birkenau will be viewed. Finally, the city of Prague will be the last to visit during the Europe trip. Prague was the former capital of the Holy Roman Empire. Students will also visit the Jewish Museum, Spanish Synagogue, the Golden Lane and many more parts of Prague.
