Multiculturalism and Nationhood (Discovering Poland)

Exploring Poland, Jewish Life Nationhood Belonging trip, planned spring break is now LIVE and OPEN

Hillel@Stanford invites Stanford students to participate in an educational journey to Poland exploring the thousand-year history and the post-Holocaust rebuilding of a major ethnic/religious minority: the Jewish community of Poland. The story of Jewish life in Poland is a powerful prism to examine themes of identity formation, minority status, genocide, nationalism, and communal resilience, which have implications far beyond any one country or community. Over the course of a week you will tour historic and modern sites, learn from scholars, activists, and students, and explore complex topics in a nuanced way with a group of 10-15 peers.
Participants must have at least one full year at Stanford remaining, with preference given to current first and second year students. Applications are now being accepted, and rolling interviews will be conducted in Weeks 2-3 of winter Quarter 2019.

All ground costs will be covered, including transportation, accommodation, meals, guides, and entrance fees.
Students are responsible for their flight to Poland.
Application deadline is January 5th 2019

Please visit Hillel's web page for pictures, videos and testimonies of past participants.
