 This unique cultural experience focuses on the people of the Czech Republic and how their country has struggled to come out from under the rule of Communism. At this point in their history you will experience people who have dealt with living under a dictatorship and those who have never know communism. You will interact with World War II survivors of the holocaust, visit the sacred grounds where many atrocities occurred and learn of their stories.

“I was honored to be an American and so proud of my country when I was in Czech Republic. That was something I never expected, that I felt more patriotism in Czech than in my own country at times. This experience alone will affect my personal gratitude to my own country and vets. I felt a renewed sense of awe and gratitude for my country and those who serve it. This experience will continue to influence my own patriotism as I support my country and her soldiers.”
