Auschwitz was a place in which several frequently conflicting agendas of the Nazi Germany intersected: it was an industrial compound, a concentration camp, a medical research site, and an extermination facility; it served to imprison, terrorize, enslave, and kill. Moreover, Auschwitz is a site of conflicted memories that raises the question how, and if at all, it can be remembered and commemorated in ways that resist both sentimentalization and the recourse to conventional literary or cinematographic imagery. In fact, one of the most pressing issues of the Holocaust studies is the question: how to educate about Nazi crimes when there are no more survivors to share their stories.
This program takes a multi-disciplinary approach and will give you the chance to take part in lectures, seminars and workshops in Poland, where you will have direct access to historical archives, museums, and leading experts in all relevant disciplines related to the Holocaust studies.You will conduct independent studies at sites of mass extermination, as well as research issues related to the Holocaust in the context of social responsibilities of researchers and professionals.
