Since its foundation, Munich has played a pivotal role in German history and politics, especially in the birth and rise of the National Socialism movement in the early 1930s. Students will gain an understanding of Nazism’s early years, which included one of Hitler’s attempted coups d’état – the Beer Hall Putsch.
