On this virtual tour broadcasted live from central Berlin, we will explore Berlin's darkest chapter as the capital city of Nazi Germany and the city's remaining Nazi-era architecture. This video-camera-led virtual tour will use high-definition broadcasting, image stabilization, and wind-proof audio technology to ensure participants the best possible immersive experience.

On this tour, we will walk along the boulevard of Wilhelmstrasse, which many Berliners feared to tread in the twelve years of the Nazi dictatorship - and on which others assembled to strain for a glimpse of Hitler upon his balcony. We will see the last Nazi architecture still intact in the city centre, including Hermann Goering's vast Aviation Ministry and Josef Goebbels' Ministry of Propaganda. We will walk over the basements of the Gestapo, where Berliners caught as members of the Resistance were tortured - and over the 'Fuehrerbunker' (Hitler’s Bunker) where Hitler breathed his last.

Led by an expert on Berlin history, Dr. Finn Ballard, this interactive seminar will transport viewers to the nucleus of the Nazi regime, live from the streets of Berlin. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with a topographical understanding of Berlin's darkest chapter.

Finn grew up in Northern Ireland before moving to England to study and later teach in the department of Film and Literature at the University of Warwick. He completed his doctoral study on German folklore and popular cinema in 2012, and has published extensively in the fields of Film Studies and Gender Studies. Since 2008, he has been living and guiding in Berlin. He now works as a historical advisor for television and film productions set in Berlin, particularly during the Weimar era or Third Reich. He is a journalist for the 'Siegessauele', Europe's foremost Queer magazine, and organises events at Berlin's English-language bookstore 'Another Country'.

Brilliant and engaging!

Finn’s knowledge of Berlin’s complicated political and architectural history is first-rate and he communicated it beautifully to his online audience during his cycle through downtown. I can’t imagine a better tour guide, and feel so fortunate to have stumbled upon this seminar. Highly recommended!
