Our Sixth Form Historians from Year 12 and Year 13 came together to spend a virtual day at the History in Action conference focusing on Democracy and Dictatorship in Germany.
The day was an excellent opportunity for the students to hear from world-leading historians such as Professor Sir Richard Evans and Sir Max Hastings. Lectures were given on a variety of topics including; an exploration of coercion and consent in Nazi Germany, a discussion of the reasons behind Britain’s involvement in the First World War, as well as an analysis of the evolution of Nazi commemorative culture as a propaganda tool, along with a lecture on Jewish German history.
The students found the day enlightening and inspiring and enjoyed the opportunity to discuss shared history knowledge and skills across the cohorts.
