CofC in Poland, Germany, Netherlands: Jewish Studies (Summer)

This program will take students to a part of the world where Nazi Germany carried out the “final solution to the Jewish question” under the cover of World War II.

In Krakow and Warsaw, we will tour former Jewish neighborhoods and visit museums, synagogues, and churches, and hold joint classes with Polish students. In Berlin and Amsterdam, we will tour the old Jewish neighborhoods, assess the meaning and impact of memorials to the dead, and sample the dynamic nightlife of the cities.
