Café historique returns October 2nd!

Dr Kristin Semmens, “Touring the Nazi Past” Much of Europe felt the imprint of the Nazi jackboot between 1933 and 1945. Focusing on different locations within Germany and Poland, Dr. Semmens traces the rise and fall of Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich. From the Reichstag building in Berlin to the Fuehrer’s retreat in the Bavarian Alps, from the Krakow ghetto to the Auschwitz death camp, we will learn about key moments in the history of German fascism which left traces on the landscape still visible to travellers today.
