The Auschwitz Jewish Center Fellows Program is now accepting applications from graduate students and the class of 2015. Since 2000, the AJC Fellows Program has provided a unique educational opportunity 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, Lódz, Treblinka, and Oswiecim (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. Paid participation is also possible for faculty members through the AJC Faculty Fellowship.
The Auschwitz Jewish Center Fellows Program will run from June 28 to July 21, 2015. More information can be found at this site. The application is due on January 12, 2015. Candidates of all religious, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
