Information for participants
19 August – 1 September 2019
POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, in Warsaw
We will invite 11 people from each country (Israel, Germany, Poland and Ukraine) to participate in the summer school, who are interested in the culture and history of Polish Jews.
The school is designed for people who already have the adequate knowledge that is required to take an active part in classes, who are willing to use their newly acquired knowledge in their future research, and who are 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 summer school. All classes will be conducted in English, therefore candidates interested in the summer school should have a very good command of English (no language certificates required).
The participants will be selected in a two-stage recruitment process.
- The first stage involves completing an application form by 1 May 2019 (application form below).
- The second stage is an interview. Based on the applications, the organizers will shortlist a group of people who will then be invited to in situ or Skype interviews (in May 2019).
Due to the differences in the education systems in the four countries participating in POLIN Meeting Point, the group of participants of POLIN Meeting Point does not have to be a uniform age group.
