Kathryn's Comments: 

For those enrolling on the World War II in Depth trip, I will provide monthly evening presentations Sept-Nov and Jan-May which cover books, films, and documents related to the subject matter covered in this trip. These sessions run from 7:00-8:30 and are provided at no cost to those enrolled on the trip. 

This World War II in Depth trip is especially timely for the 75th Anniversary of D-Day on June 6th, 1944.  Although it is scheduled for the later part of June, commemorative events and materials will be visible during the trip. Travelers, if they wish, may opt to go ahead of time to England, or remain at the end of the program in Munich to travel on their own. This 10-day trip is designed for students as well as adults, and our group from Indianapolis will most likely be combined with another group. In 2017, our adult group was able to enjoy lunch at a private club on Pall Mall next to St. James Place, then walked a short distance to the Churchill War Rooms for a tour.  I have been a group leader or chaperone on more than five trips with ACIS, and highly recommend them for excellently located hotels and meals. Their tour managers have been outstanding as well. 

Throughout the years, WWII Roundtable Members and friends have had the opportunity to travel to significant and historical locations all over the world. Below is a list of our current organized trips.
