The AJC PSA is a long-weekend program in Kraków for students studying overseas. The program, which includes a scholarly visit to Oświęcim/Auschwitz, provides an academic environment through which participants engage intensively with the history of the Holocaust and Jewish life in Poland.
The program takes place during fall and spring semesters and is facilitated by American and Polish staff of the Auschwitz Jewish Center, under the auspices of the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in New York. During the program, meals, accommodation, entrance fees, and transportation are provided.
