During the last week of May, seven Boston-area college students will travel to Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland. The core of the trip will take place at the former Nazi death camp where one-million Jews were murdered during the Holocaust. We will also visit Jewish sites in the town Oswiecm, adjacent to the Auschwitz I camp.

This mission is part of “Together, Restoring Their Names,” one of many projects tied to CJP’s “IACT” Campus Initiative. We are partnering with the State Museum of Auschwitz-Birkenau and the Auschwitz Jewish Center for tours and content, and fellows will also conduct their own pre-trip research to present on-site. For the first time, each of the fellows will be live-blogging throughout the mission, with the public invited to submit questions.

Please follow us on Facebook for links to our live-blog beginning on May 26. You are also welcome to submit questions to us in advance by emailing them to Elan Kawesch: Elan@TogetherRestoring.com
