Munich Trip 2020

Check out NJC’21 student Logan F.'s video that captures all the amazing highlights.

This October the Class of '21 travelled to Munich Germany to learn about the history of Nazi Germany and World War II. The students were accompanied by University of Toronto Professor Robert Johnson who showed them the remarkable city through the eyes of a historian. Professor Johnson led the students on a "Rise of the Third Reich" walking tour, and took them for a guided tour of the Dauchau concentration camp. 

Experiential learning is one of the cornerstones of the NJC experience, and the students reflections from this weekend illustrate just how transformative these trips can be.

"Going to Dachau was a formative but also harrowing experience because you actually got to see how close everything was together and it really kind of put into perspective how much death was just an ever present threat every single day for these people" - Oscar '21

"The teachers tried to prepare us...but I found that when we got there nothing could really prepare me for walking into a concentration camp." - Emily '21

Students also had the opportunity to visit other famous Munich attractions such as the Deutsches (science and technology) Museum, the BMW Museum and the Neue Pinakothek (modern art museum). Grade 12 and Gap year students enjoyed experiencing Munich's unique offerings and discovered firsthand why this international city is the financial, publishing and cultural centre of Germany.
