Global Student Leaders Summit – Day #4
Written by Camile El-Bayar & Alina Fox
Today we ate breakfast in the hostel (castle). It was amazing how fresh the fruit and bread was! From there we went to the Nuremberg Documentation Center and focused on the events that led up to WW2 and the progression of the Nazi regime. It was fascinating to see the difference between how WW2 museums in America project the war compared to the WW2 museums in Germany. In order to add a more hands on experience to what we just learned at the Nuremberg Documentation Center, we went to the former Nazi Rally Grounds where Hitler would rally his officers with speech. Once back to the main square in Nuremberg we had a small walking tour of the city. This really gave us a perspective on the local life in Nuremberg. From there we were able to get lunch and have time to explore the town square. Between the elegant church and the five story high convenience store containing everything you need and more, our impression of Nuremberg was that of pure fascination. Not only did Nuremberg fulfill our craving for delicious gelato, it also showed us how Christmas really should be done with their Christmas wonderland store. For dinner, we paired up with a school from South Dakota called Porcupine. These students attend school on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. We ate at a wonderful Greek restaurant, Delphi, which had a wide variety of foods, from soups to pastas and calamari. We had a traditional Greek dinner and an opportunity for cultural exchange. It was the most delicious way to end our last day in Nuremberg.
