The "Grodzka Gate – NN Theatre" Centre in Lublin in cooperation with
the University College of Enterprise and Administration in Lublin and
Panorama of Cultures Association
launches the second edition of the Summer School Program,
inviting students and professionals (scholars, educators)
engaged in the work on Jewish memory and heritage.
Our aim is to impart knowledge about the Jewish cultural heritage of Central and Eastern Europe using the example of Lublin and the Lublin region. All of the important cultural phenomena of Ashkenazi Jewry can be discovered in this microcosm. With the help of scholars from Europe and the United States, participants will be able to explore this past.
We intend participants not only to obtain a certain amount of knowledge, but also to challenge themselves by creating a short project of their own in the course of the seminar. This project will be the result of a creative processing of all the information and experiences gained during the summer school.
We offer theoretical learning combined with practical activities that provide context for the place you will be learning about.
The program includes:
- interactive educational walks,
- meetings with members of the local Jewish community,
- three-day study tour of the localities that played an important role in the Jewish history of the region and are well known from the literature of I.B. Singer and other Yiddish writers - towns such as Kazimierz Dolny, Zamość, Szczebrzeszyn, Józefów, Biłgoraj and others,
- visits to the concentration camp museum at Majdanek and the death camp at Bełżec.
All of these activities will be held under the supervision of recognized scholars from the USA and Poland.
