Spring 2018 Newsletter
The Spring semester is always a special time at the Weiss-Livnat International Program. We begin to see the fruits of our current student’s hard work and dedication and are excited by their success. But it is also a bittersweet time as we begin to bid our current cohort goodbye and prepare for the new cohort’s arrival in October. Please enjoy this newsletter sharing accounts from the past semester, upcoming events and introductions to some of our new students.
New Issue of Dapim: Studies on the Holocaust
We are excited to share our most recent issue with you, a special issue on “New Trends in Museums and Memorials.” The essays explore the theme of Holocaust commemoration from an interdisciplinary perspective, presenting the insights of historians, sociologists, literary critics, and museum curators. Their articles examine a wide range of Holocaust museums and memorials across the globe: in Germany, Austria, Poland, Lithuania, Israel, United States, and Australia.
This unique MA Program is dedicated to creating and nurturing a new generation of Holocaust researchers and educators. In addition to rigorous multi-disciplinary course work with leading researchers, our students gain professional experience through research assistantships, internships in Israel and abroad, seminars and study tours. Students also have the opportunity to hear from Holocaust survivors and as well as build relationships with survivors through volunteer programs. Our programs hopes to help foster dedication to the field of Holocaust Studies.
