I-Witness Field School 2016

Germanic Studies 489 is a 3-unit field school course that explores the ways in which the Holocaust has become memorialized in Central Europe. Following one week of intensive study at the University of Victoria, participants spend three weeks in Central Europe exploring various memorial spaces in at least three different countries (Germany, Austria, and Poland) — from the sites of former concentration camps to the stumbling stone project, from former ghettos to railway stations, from cemeteries to T-4 euthanasia sites, from museums to memorials.

There were information sessions on Sept. 21st, Sept. 23rd, Oct. 1st, and Oct. 2nd. The deadline to apply is Nov. 1st, 2015.
