Sessions may involve more than one educator as per your requirements- so students benefit from a carousel of activities on a variety of topics- such as reasons behind the conflict, Hitler's rise to power, what was Blitzgrieg?, the life of a soldier, identifying friend and foe, medical treatments, life during the Blitz, rationing,  Air Raid procedures, technological advancements during the war, The Final Solution etc.
