Information for participants


The programme will take place on 13-27 August 2017 at POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw as well as in Łódź and Zduńska Wola.


We will invite 14 participants from each of the countries currently taking part in the project (Poland, Germany and Israel). This year, we will additionally invite 5 students from Ukraine (pilot edition).

The school is designed for people with adequate knowledge required to take an active part in the classes, willing to use the newly acquired knowledge in their future research, and open to dialogue and cooperation.

Some of the participants will be selected through an open recruitment procedure, while the remaining places will be made available to students of universities that cooperate with the museum in the execution of the programme. The participants will be selected in a two-stage recruitment process. The first stage involves completing an application form by 4 May 2017. Based on the applications, the organisers will shortlist a group of people who will then be invited to  in situ or Skype interviews.
