‘Why Europe?’ – now for the history and politics

Having thought about our ‘Why Europe?’ theme in a cultural way yesterday, this morning we went to the German History Museum. Our guides gave us an overview, focusing on objects that relate to our ‘Why Europe?’ theme. Napoleon’s hat was a hit! We were also intrigued to see Turkey’s acceptance vary over time and had much food for thought comparing the 1815 and 1919 European treaties. After spending the afternoon in groups seeing Berlin through the eyes of our hosts, we met up at the Reichstag. A really interesting tour of the building ended with lovely views from the dome of Berlin by night.
