Never forget” means so much more than just commemoration. This rigorous graduate level program at the University of Haifa aims to create and nurture the next generation of Holocaust educators and researchers through multi-disciplinary courses and seminars, research assistantships, internships abroad and in Israel, and study tours. Perhaps one of the most compelling aspects of the program is the chance for students to build relationships with survivors through volunteer opportunities.
Coursework is comprised of a series of academic classes coupled with enriching seminars. Highly anticipated seminars involve multi-day class trips to the Ghetto Fighters’ House Museum and Yad Vashem. The program also hosts many organizations and scholars to deliver talks on campus. Past topics include: Holocaust denial and its repercussions, the Warsaw ghetto uprising with filmmaker Ronen Zaretzky, narrative interviewing, and German-Israeli academic dialogue.
The University of Haifa serves as the perfect backdrop for study of the Holocaust and its global impact, as it is known as the most pluralistic university in Israel. The importance of keeping the memory and analysis alive is reflected in the diverse student population – some 18,000 students, including Jews, Christians, Muslim Arabs, Druze, Bedouins, as well immigrants and native Israelis. The opportunity to study here further ingrains the importance of continued attention to this complex and horrific period in history.
