Summer 2017 fellowship on the Holocaust, Polish-Jewish history, and memory

The Auschwitz Jewish Center Fellows Program is now accepting applications for the summer of 2017. Since 2000, the AJC Fellows Program has provided a unique educational opportunity for graduate students and seniors to learn about the Holocaust in situ in the context of Poland’s history and Jewish heritage. Through travel in Poland for three weeks, during which time Fellows visit Krakow, Warsaw, Lódź, Treblinka, and Oświęcim (Auschwitz), Fellows gain not only knowledge of the Holocaust sites they visit, but also an understanding of the legacy of the Holocaust in Poland, its effects on collective memory, and complexities surrounding such categories as victim, bystander, and perpetrator. All program costs, except travel to the program’s start in New York, are covered. Here is the online link to the poster: https://t.e2ma.net/message/uplk0fb/6230jpb

Students also have direct career options.

This section is dedicated to helping our students find opportunities after their undergraduate degree, be it graduate studies or employment. If you know of an opportunity and would like to share it with your fellow students, please contact Professor Keith Fleming.
