Today we started our morning by going to the Wannsee House. This is a major sight of the preparation of carrying out the plans to murder the Jews. This was a gorgeous house on a gorgeous piece of property. Here we went through more exhibits about the Holocaust and how the Germans view it, which was very interesting to hear from their point of view. We learned a lot about the planning that went into the Holocaust as well as the history of the main people who planned it. We then took a tour of the city. It amazing to see how pretty everything in Berlin truly is. We saw the American Embassy, remnants of the Berlin Wall, and various other sights. All in all, it was a great day. And, of course, I still have been speaking a lot of German to the natives.
