Vlog 8 of 11 - Trip to Council of Europe & Tour of Natzweiler-Struthof

This is the eighth video in the series about student life during Regent Law's summer 2013 study abroad program in Strasbourg, France. In this video, our group visits the Council of Europe and then tours the Alsatian mountains, including a visit to the Natzweiler-Struthof concentration camp.

It was definitely a busy week for the program outside of the classroom. On Tuesday, we got out of classes early for a half-day visit to the Council of Europe, followed by lunch at the program director's residence. Then on Thursday, we went on an all-day tour in the mountains above Strasbourg to the Natzweiler-Struthof concentration camp, a museum about Alsace, and Mont St. Odile. The Thursday trip was very thought-provoking, but I am glad we saw the concentration camp. It gave me a tangible connection to a terrible part of world history.

Many thanks to everyone who appeared in this video and assisted in its production.
