Application deadline: Spring 2012 I-witness Field School


The I-witness Holocaust Field School, a life-changing course launched by UVic's Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies last year, is a first of its kind in Canada and the deadline is fast approaching for students to enroll in the Spring 2012 program.

The course will run from May 7 to June 2, 2012, with the first week of classes taking place at UVic followed by three weeks in Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic. The field school explores how the sights, memories and history of the Holocaust have been preserved at historical sites, museums and monuments in Central Europe, and helps build an understanding of how the lessons of that time are relevant today.
