“The program did so much more than meet my expectations. I went into this program viewing it as an academic exercise of critical analysis, which in some ways it was. However, I also had a powerful experience that changed the way I view many different aspects of not only my studies, but my own life. The support offered by the program staff, as well as classmates created an environment that made this experience possible.”

The Auschwitz Jewish Center is now pleased to offer customized programs year-round in Poland for academic and private groups of all sizes. The AJC will build a program tailored to meet your needs and goals. Our staff are available to make logistical arrangements, accompany your group throughout the experience, guide tours, give lectures, and facilitate educational discussions and reflection. Staff bios are available upon request.
Many customized programs use our “Program for Students Abroad” syllabus as a model. A sample syllabus for this Krakow and Oświęcim based program can be found here. We can also create programs for your group in other Polish cities and of different lengths, and can coordinate arrangements including, but not limited to:
- Hotel accommodations
- Ground transportation
- Testimony and lectures with academics from local universities
- Academic components: pre-trip reading, discussion outline, and guidance throughout trip
