In summer 2015, the Auschwitz Jewish Center Fellows Program will enroll up to four Faculty Fellows. The Faculty Fellowship provides an unparalleled opportunity for site visits, discussion, and enrichment for faculty who teach the Holocaust in any discipline but have not made its history their primary area of study.

The AJC Fellows Program provides a unique educational opportunity to learn about the Holocaust in situ in the context of Poland’s history and Jewish heritage. It is the goal of the Auschwitz Jewish Center Fellows Program that all Fellows gain not only knowledge of the Holocaust sites they visit, but also an understanding of the legacy of the Holocaust in Poland, its effects on collective memory, and complexities surrounding such categories as victim, bystander, and perpetrator. 

The cost of the program is $4,700 per person, which includes all hotel rooms in single accommodations, meals in New York, materials, international airfare, internal travel in Poland, and entrance fees. Past Faculty Fellows have funded their participation through university and department grants and travel funding. 

The application is due on February 18, 2015. Candidates will be informed of their status by March 18, 2015. For further information, please contact Shiri B. Sandler at
