DATE AND TIME
  • April 28, 2019 -
  • May 12, 2019
LOCATION
  • Poland and Israel

Join other Jewish high school seniors from all over the world as you embark on this incredible experience. You’ll go to Poland on Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Memorial Day) and march from Auschwitz to Birkenau, the largest concentration camp complex built during World War II. Then travel to Israel to observe Yom HaZikaron (Israel Memorial Day) and Yom Ha’Atzmaut (Israel Independence Day).

From Poland to Israel, from darkness to light, we are still here.

Eligibility & Preparation
Students who will be in the 12th grade during the 2017-18 school year are eligible to participate. Applicants must complete an application and medical form. If you are chosen, you will attend 6 pre-trip sessions to review Holocaust history, Israeli culture, and facilitate group bonding. These sessions are offered by the Center for Holocaust & Humanity Education.
