wkctcs 300PADUCAH, Ky. (9/5/13) – London, Normandy, Paris, Berlin, and Munich are just a few of the cities that will be visited as part of the West Kentucky Community and Technical College Study Abroad Program in May 2014.

The trip, which is open to the public, will help travelers gain insight into the effects of the World War II. “’WWII and the Liberation of France’ and ‘WWII and the Western Front’ is designed to put context to the decisions that turned into war, and learn about the heroes that were made, lost and should be remembered,” said Pat Blaine WWII trip tour leader and WKCTC English professor.

Anyone interested in finding out more about this trip is invited to attend a free informational meeting on September 11 at 11:00 a.m. in the Matheson Library Resource Building, room 7. The informational meeting will cover all trip details including sites to be visited, pricing for both trips and the introductory history course.

In earlier Spring 2014, Berry Craig, author and retired WKCTC history professor, will also be teaching an introduction course as a preliminary to the WWII trip. The course will emphasize the European Theater of operations and examine the military, political, social and economic impact of the war on Europe. History 120 will be offered online and can be taken for credit or audited. Although the course is open to all, it is highly recommended for travelers of the WWII trip. Craig will also be traveling with the tour group.

Trip information and early registration can be found at efcollegetours.com . The tour number for England/France is #1435787MH and the tour number for The Western Front is #1303828UW. Interested participants can also call

1-877-485-4184. Participants may choose either the first nine days for The Liberation of France option (May 15-23) or the entire 16-day option, which adds Germany (May 15-30).
