In this eight-part series of weekly virtual events, join Rick on Zoom as he introduces episodes from the newest season of “Rick Steves’ Europe” (Season 11). Together, we’ll screen each full-episode with Rick pausing for behind-the-scenes commentary, and then we’ll finish with a Q&A — your chance to ask questions and interact with Rick.
Traveling across Germany, we’ll learn how fascism rose and then fell, taking millions of people with it. Visiting actual locations — from Munich to Nürnberg to Berlin — we’ll trace the roots of Nazism in the aftermath of World War I, when masses of angry people were enchanted by Hitler. We’ll explore the totalitarian society Hitler built, and see the consequences: genocide and total war. Learning from Germany's fascist story, we can recognize that hateful ideology as well as the tricks of wannabe dictators in our own age.
