The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies-Muskegon is sponsoring a trip to Poland. While Poland was the center for the “death factories”, it was also one of the great centers for Jewish life and culture and religion. We will explore Warsaw and visit the great POLIN Museum, talk with residents about past-present-future; we will move on the Krakow a great center of Jewish life and take a side trip to visit a site of restoration; and we will continue on to Auschwitz.
There will be a series of classes arranged with Muskegon Community College to explore life in Poland before Hitler and gain a perspective on Hews and Poles and the political situation between the Wars.
Please read through the materials on PDF and fill out an application.
The sessions are open to the community whether you are going on the trip or not.
