The Rise and Fall of Hitler's Germany

The Galapagos Islands

May 25 to June 5, 2020

In Europe, the journey to war began in the private meeting rooms and raucous public stadiums of Germany where the Nazis concocted and then promoted their designs for a new world order, one founded on conquest and racial-purity ideals. As they launched the war on September 1, 1939, by invading Poland, Hitler and his followers unleashed a hell that would return to its birthplace in Berlin fewer than six years later. On this exclusive tour, designed by expert historian Dr. Alexandra Richie and The National WWII Museum, travel on a journey through Germany and Poland that takes you from Berlin to Auschwitz to Warsaw, focused on the devastating legacy of the Holocaust, the bombing raids, and the last battles.
