WWII: The Western Front & the Holocaust Tour

Are you ready to make meaningful real-life connections with the events of D-Day, the assault operations of 101st Airborne Division and the atrocities of the Holocaust? Come step back into history with me and your Trinity brothers.

In June of 2019, Trinity students will travel abroad to become living witnesses to the atrocities brought about during World War II and by the Nazi Party’s Final Solution. Students will have an opportunity to make real-life connections to events typically only studied in history books. Our history of WWII Western Front and the Holocaust tour will give students the opportunity to explore London, Portsmouth, Caen, Normandy, Rouen, Luxembourg City, Bastogne, Amsterdam, Hannover and Berlin as part of 14-day trek across Western Europe.

Tour highlights include:

A tour of Churchill’s War Rooms

A guided sightseeing tour of the beaches at Normandy

A tour of 101st Airborne sites in France and Belgium including 1944 foxholes in Foy

A tour of the Anne Frank House and the Dutch Resistance Museum

A dinner cruise down the canals of Amsterdam

Tours of the Bergen- Belsen memorial and Sachsenhausen concentration camps

A tour of the Reichstag in Berlin

A guided tour of Bebelplatz, Bendlerbock, the Berlin Holocaust Memorial and Hitler’s bunker

SIGN UP TODAY! For more information on this trip, access our tour website at www.lingo-tours.com/WWT966 or see Ms. Darby in S-352 for more specific information or with questions.

There will be a very important FBLA meeting on Monday in T318. This meeting is mandatory for all students who plan to compete in the FBLA regional conference events.

The 7th ACE mentoring class will be held today in Mr. CM’s room, F134, immediately after school, from 3 to 5 p.m. We will split up into teams and work on this year’s project, which is a Round-About and clock tower on Sherrin Ave.

Sophomores, are you still searching for the perfect Christmas gift for that special girl in your life? Or is one of your New Year’s resolutions to procrastinate less in 2019? Well have no fear!
