Traces of History

Danielle Knoller

My competition was about...
...Rome's failure to adapt its city-state style government to ruling an empire and its consequences. Either out of genuine concern for reform, desire for personal gain and glory, or a combination of the two, Julius Caesar gave the Republic its final push over the edge following a detailed plan.

My competition was about...
…schools in Nazi Germany. I studied the way the Nazis perceived education, the importance they accorded to schooling and the way they changed it to fit their worldview once they were in power. Furthermore, I studied how the system of education affected its students and what students thought of the system once the Nazi regime fell.
