The Holocaust in Europe
The program provides a short-term summer study and travel seminar abroad for K-12 educators particularly in the social studies, English, and language arts areas. Educators will travel to Warsaw Poland for the purpose of improving an understanding and knowledge of the people and culture. With a focus on the Holocaust and its impact on modern society, educators will take back powerful experiences for their classroom and students.
"A life-changing opportunity not only to learn about the holocaust from the community most impacted by it (including
the children of survivors), but to spend time with Jewish students and professors learning how these societies have
moved on in positive ways since that horrific event." - John Hubers, Director of Global Education
