Preserving the Memory

Despite being exhausted from the long and arduous journey to the other side of the world, I woke up at the first sign of light in Berlin at 5:04 a.m. Our journey to learn about the culture of our neighbors to the east would start today and I wasn’t going to waste any time. I wanted to find out and document everything that I possibly could, from the simple cultural differences at breakfast, to the preservation of the history of this storied nation and city.


Holy moly, am I glad I slept well last night, because today was a whirlwind. When Dr. P said we were hitting the ground running today, he was not lying.

Today, our group had the opportunity to discover Berlin in the eyes of its remembrance and tribute toward their doings in the Holocaust


From the moment I found out I was going on CR10, I had been counting down the days. However, with finals and my incredible brother graduation, my inner CR hype had to be ceased for a little bit; BUT, now that that has all been accomplished, the hype is back and bigger than ever. We leave for this experience, not a trip, experience, in one day.
