Our partnerships with Yad Vashem and The Ghetto Fighters’ House Museum expose our students to the professional life of Holocaust scholar while providing extensive research opportunities and private seminars. We offer internship opportunities at these two institutions as well as many other Israeli institutions to provide students with backgrounds in museum work, curriculum development and archival work. During the Research Forum, each week our program hosts a guest lecturer. Our program also features several study tours including a trip to Poland, which takes our students out of the classroom and to the actual sites where this history happened. In addition, our students have the opportunity to volunteer weekly with Holocaust survivors, fostering personal relationships with vital sources in our field.
