Guided tours will be arranged for the members and key partners of the Foundation to explore various significant historical and memorial sites in and around Aachen.
On the afternoon of February 28, immediately following the EXPO, the participants will visit the Vogelsang complex which was once used as a National Socialist training centre and is now a place for active remembrance. They will also explore the Hürtgen Forest, which was the site of the longest battle fought on German soil between September and December 1944.
On February 29 morning, the participants will be taken on a guided tour of the city of Aachen to learn about its rich history during WWII.
