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 five weeks in Poland 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.

Eligibility

All Burch Field Research Seminars are open to UNC undergraduates (sophomore status or greater) who have a 3.0 GPA.

Did You Know?
