Deadline for Applications: February 11, 2018
Through travel in Poland for three weeks, during which time Fellows visit Krakow, Warsaw, Lódź, Treblinka, and Oświęcim (Auschwitz), Fellows gain not only knowledge of the Holocaust sites they visit, but also an understanding of the legacy of the Holocaust in Poland, its effects on collective memory, and complexities surrounding such categories as victim, bystander, and perpetrator.
The Fellowship will offer Faculty Fellowships in 2018. These Fellowships will be for faculty who teach the Holocaust in any discipline but have not made its history their primary area of study. The Auschwitz Jewish Center Fellows Program – Faculty Fellowship is open to professors of all faiths.
The cost of the program is $5,000 per person, which includes all hotel rooms in single accommodations, meals in New York, materials, international airfare, internal travel in Poland, and entrance fees. The majority of meals in Poland are not included in the syllabus and are not provided. Past Faculty Fellows have funded their participation through university and department grants and travel funding. If you’d like to speak with previous Faculty Fellows, please let Yael Friedman know at AJC@mjhnyc.org.
