Year 13 historians enjoy university-style lectures in Manchester

Year 13 historians enjoyed an opportunity to listen to specialists delivering university-style lectures in Manchester this week.

Roger Griffin from Oxford Brookes University enthralled them with a witty and thought-provoking talk on the complex interaction between events and personalities that led to the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party in Germany in the interwar years.

He was proceeded by Aristotle Kallis from Keele university who challenged the traditional view that the Weimar Republic, established in Germany after the First World War, was ‘doomed from its start’.
