Spring 2014 Auschwitz Jewish Center Program for Students Abroad



Spring 2014 Auschwitz Jewish Center Program for Students Abroad (AJC PSA)

“I am honored to have been a part of the Program for Students Abroad. It was a great mix of tours, history, present culture, and important education. I absolutely recommend this program.” -2011 PSA Participant

Applications are now open here for the AJC PSA, a long-weekend program in Kraków for students studying overseas. The program, which includes a scholarly visit to Oświęcim/Auschwitz, provides an academic environment through which participants engage intensively with the history of the Holocaust and Jewish life in Poland. The program takes place during fall and spring semesters and is facilitated by American and Polish staff of the Auschwitz Jewish Center, under the auspices of the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in New York. During the program, meals, accommodation, entrance fees, and transportation are provided.
