Course aim

‚ÄčThe purpose of this summer school is to provide students with the opportunity to collaborate with an international cohort to study Holocaust history. Students will then use these "lessons from the past" to examine, investigate, and critique problems in today's societies (social inequality, discrimination, refugees) in order to formulate a final project to convey these lessons to a target audience.

In this international project, students will work in small teams comprised of both their Dutch and US peers. Excursions to Amsterdam (Anne Frank Home), Former Concentration Camp Bergen Belsen and Berlin (Holocaust Museum) will be part of this summer institute.
