Colyton students visit Berlin
Youngsters learn about German city’s historic past
PUPILS from Colyton Grammar School spent four days studying the history and architecture of Berlin.
Braving sub-zero temperatures, the 35-strong party visited a range of sites relating to the Nazi era, including Sachsenhausen concentration camp.
They also visited places of contemporary importance such as the home of the German parliament, the Bundestag, and the 1936 Olympic stadium which is still Berlin’s main sporting venue.
The students found the National Socialist neo-classical architecture thought provoking.
