Poland, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, and Germany are all located on the shores of the Baltic Sea, and have long been at the crossroads of the East and West. Caught between Hitler and Stalin, each of these countries suffered under Nazi and later Soviet occupation for a period of fifty years. On this program, students will learn how each country is attempting to reclaim its national identity and its own narrative of the past. Students will participate in lectures on history and culture. Coursework will be enriched by excursions to museums, monuments and cultural outings to Berlin and other historic cities. BYU professors and local experts will teach courses on history, political science, and European Studies.
