I went on this tour because of the groupon deals, but I now seriously regret that. Like so many others I find the history about the Third Reich incredibly interesting, and also very important to remember. So that we don't repeat the same mistakes again. Blackbird offer an extra long and detailed tour about the Nazi time.
Our guide Lauren knows her stuff, and is very passionate about it. A bit too passionate. She was always taking the side of the perpetrators of these horrible crimes against humanity.
I had a very bad taste in my mouth after this tour. There was no sympathy for the victims. I have Jewish friends who's grand parents were killed. I have also met a survivor, and was moved to tears when he told me how his mother and sister were kicked to death in front of his eyes in Riga concentration camp.
This is what we have to remember, not how good the generals looked in their fancy uniforms and leather boots.
