TEXTURE OF MEMORY: JEWISH LIFE AND THE HOLOCAUST

This Burch Field Research Seminar is a five-week program that brings students to one of the heartlands of Jewish life to study history, culture, and memory before, during and after the Holocaust. Students will spend four weeks in Poland and one week in Lithuania examining how the Holocaust is remembered and memorialized – connecting memory of the Holocaust with the cities, towns and Nazi camps where the events took place.
