Illinois Students Complete Second Alternative Spring Break in Berlin

From their home base of Berlin – where the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign students visited residents of a seniors center and volunteered at a local Jewish school – the delegation made trips to outlying areas, including the Saschenhausen concentration camp and an abandoned ancient Jewish cemetery.
