After the arrival at the hostel, the students will get a introduction of the program of the next days by their Schoolclash-Tutor. Subsequently they are going to visit the centre of Berlin. You can choose between two possibilities: In the first place we could arrange a guided tour through the centre of Berlin with a focus on the history of the Second World war and the Cold war in Berlin. The guide will explain the history of the most famous buildings and sight like the Bundestag, Brandenburger Tor and Checkpoint Charly. As alternative program we could arrange a SMS-tour through the same district, where the students will discover the most famous sights in a playful way: they will search the destinations on photos and answering historical questions by SMS. In the evening you will have a diner buffet in one of the Turkish restaurants in Kreuzberg.
Day 2 is about the Cold war and the era of the German Democratic Republic. In the morning you will visit the Eastside Gallery. This part of the former Berlin Wall was, after the fall of the wall, painted by approximately 100 artists. It has become an international memorial for freedom. The students will choose the most interesting wall painting, the one they like the most and will analyze these in small groups with one of our guides. After this the students will have some free time near the Karl Marx Allee, a monumental socialist boulevard built by the GDR between 1952 and 1960 with a lot of architectural monumental buildings. In the afternoon they will get a guided tour through the former Stasi-jail by a former inmate, who also relate the tour to their own experience in the remand prison. In the evening you will have diner in one of the restaurants in Kreuzberg and subsequently the student will watch the movie ‘Sonnenallee’ , this humorous German movie takes place in Berlin during the GDR-era.

Afterwards they will get a guided tour and workshop in the Jewish Museum. Here the story of Coco Schumann - who experienced social exclusion and rightlessness as a young Jew in Berlin - is interactively and excitingly relayed. At the age of 18 he was deported first to the Theresienstadt ghetto and then to the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp, which he survived as musician to the guards. Numerous documentary film clips as well as pictures, texts, and audio recordings give a powerful insight into his life and survival.
