Mission: Berlin! (‘Escape the Room’ activity on Hitler’s consolidation of power)

A new “Escape the Room!” stand-alone lesson designed to last between 45 minutes and an hour.

“You are a member of the Social Democrats, enemies of the new chancellor of Germany, Adolf Hitler. The Reichstag has just burned down and Hitler has persuaded President Hindenburg to declare a state of emergency and outlaw opposition parties. You were tricked into coming to a secret meeting which was in fact organised by the SA. They have locked you in a room with a bomb due to explode within it in 45 minutes. Your job is to unlock the case and defuse the bomb before it explodes and kills you all”.
