Poland | Kent State University

Visit one of the most rich and historically important countries in Europe and experience history firsthand.

Students will be introduced to the Holocaust as it occurred in Poland from varying points of view represented by survivors, films, art, and museum representations, and will have the opportunity to experience firsthand many of the historic sites with the belief that seeing will lead to ever lasting memories and understandings of the horrific events of this period of time. Students will be required to keep and submit a journal based on their trip and write a short essay about one of the topics covered on the trip. The trip will include visits to Warsaw, Krakow, and Auschwitz – Birkenau. Students will visit museums, listen to speakers, meet with Survivors and Righteous among the Nations, as well as students and professors from local universities.
