Rationale for providing an alternative practice question 3

Source C in the Summer 2023 Germany paper originally contained two sections of the painting ‘Big City’ by Otto Dix. Having reviewed the source we have decided that it contains a stereotypical depiction which does not align with our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion commitments. In light of this, and the feedback we have received from teachers regarding the package of sources and interpretations, we are providing an alternative practice question 3 parts a–d which centres will be able to use for mock exams. The question uses a fresh set of sources and interpretations.
