The summer school covers the major events and themes of modern German history through the lens of one city: Potsdam – the capital of the federal state of Brandenburg.

The city, located close to Berlin, has hosted the Prussian court since the 18th century, when Prussia became one of the European Great Powers, and was the residential city of the German Kaiser from 1871 to 1918. Its role might be compared to that of Versailles in France.

Potsdam’s historical trajectory offers the unique possibility of simultaneously reflecting on macro-levels of German history and gaining insight knowledge and a comprehensive understanding of a micro-level perspective - all while being on the scene.

The focus on learning locations and original encounters outside the classroom in the form of field trips and the interactive lecture design provides an excellent way to explore the German past in depth.
