Through 4-day trips in the 2010-2011 academic year, the AJC will open its doors to North American students who are studying abroad in Western and Central Europe. The AJC Program for Students Abroad provides an exceptional scholarly learning environment through which students can engage intensively with the history of the Holocaust and of Jewish life in Poland. The AJC’s programming offers a unique opportunity for North American students to visit Krakow and Oswiecim, work with scholars, take in-depth tours of Auschwitz-Birkenau, hear testimony, and engage in meaningful discussion.
Undergraduate students can apply for the opportunity to travel in Poland for 4 days and 3 nights and receive an unparalleled learning experience about the Holocaust. It is the goal of the program that students will learn about the history of the Holocaust and of Auschwitz in ways that they could not through independent visits to the camp and that they will be able to incorporate the lessons they have learned into their academic, personal, and professional lives in a significant way. At the end of the program, students will receive a certificate of completion from the Auschwitz Jewish Center.
