Fall 2014 Study Trip: Poland

During this year's fall break, 14 students, 2 staff members, and 2 faculty members joined a group of passionate JFRC Alumni in Poland. There, they immersed themselves in the beautiful culture, and met many wonderful people. The group began in Warsaw, going on a Jewish Ghetto tour. From Warsaw, they travelled to Torun, for the 9th Annual Symposium on Human Rights and a Just Society, entitled "Speaking with the Devil: the Rwandan Genocide and the Modern World - Lessons Learned," in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the Rwandan Genocides. From Torun, they travelled to Krakow, where they toured Schindler's factor, Auschwitz and Birkenau, and the Wieliczka Salt Mines.
