Key Stage 3 | Subject: History | Topics: Crime and Punishment, First World War | Session Type: Route-based
Would you execute a spy? Students will face this decision when re-enacting the 1914 trial of the first spy shot at the Tower.
They will analyse contemporary evidence before concluding whether the defendant Carl Hans Lody deserved to be executed. Was his guilt on the charge of war treason a foregone conclusion? Was he actually a German spy or was just an officer completing his duty?
This session explores the Tower's unique, and often forgotten, First World War history.
