External Call for Participants: Seminar/Study Trip to Israel

Posted on 20/04/2017
Valley of Lost Communities, Yad Vashem, Israel
The founder of the Holocaust Educational Foundation, Mr. Zev Weiss, invites applications for the first winter seminar/study trip to Israel to run from December 10-22, 2017. All professors and graduate students pursuing PhDs in Holocaust-related studies are invited to apply.

This eleven-day trip will include a two-day seminar at Yad Vashem where participants will be introduced to Yad Vashem’s resources including their archival holdings, visual center, data-base, and mapping technology, as well as lectures on Israeli historiography of the Holocaust. Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss and present their research.

The group will visit various cities and sites in Israel including Tel Aviv and the old city of Jaffa, Nazareth and Ceasarea, Haifa and a night or two on a Kibbutz. The group will also visit Masada and the Dead Sea and Safed and areas near the Lebanese border.

Cost includes all hotels and breakfasts, transportation throughout Israel in a safe and private bus, and entrance fees. The cost of the trip is approximately $2500 USD excluding airfare. Mr. Weiss will subsidize all participants who register by June 30 with $800 reducing the cost of the trip to $1700 + airfare.

Those interested should contact Professor Hilary Earl (hearl@nipissingu.ca) immediately. Interested participants must provide a $500.00 deposit by June 30, 2017.

Cheques should be made payable to Lessons and Legacies. Mail deposits to Mr. Zev Weiss, 3130 Big Tree Lane, Wilmette, IL, 60091. Deposits are refundable until September 1, 2017 only. For those who are really strapped small additional subsidies may be available. Contact Zev Weiss at HEF3aol.com for details.

We hope that you are able to participate in this enlightening and rewarding experience.
