The Holocaust in Prague
Rebecca Hughes, Coordinator
There is almost no better place to study the Holocaust than Prague. In this four-week global seminar, we visit key sites in and near Prague, and we spend a long weekend in Krakow, Poland with a day at Auschwitz-Birkenau. In addition to studying the Holocaust, students explore the stunning beauty and rich history of Prague. Students walk the cobblestone streets, taste Czech food, and attend a musical performance. Highlights of this seminar include a long weekend trip to Krakow Poland, and a day trip to Cesky Krumlov, a picturesque medieval city.
