Project Description

June 13-21, 2018

DEADLINE: March 30, 2018

From Auschwitz to Human Rights Program is an eight-day intensive program for students and young professionals, utilizing Poland as a case study to examine broader human rights issues. Poland’s dynamic history makes it a unique location to study historic and contemporary human rights issues-from the Holocaust to the modern refugee crisis.


FAHR uses Polish-Jewish relations as a background case study, allowing participants to examine activism and social change locally through experienced histories, individuals, and institutions. The program’s approach addresses broad concepts in the human rights field by focusing on historical and contemporary Poland, which offers lessons that can be applied globally.
