What is Project Preservation?
Every year, Dartmouth Hillel takes a group of students from different ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds to Eastern Europe for a major Holocaust study and restoration initiative. In addition to visiting historic sites such as Auschwitz-Birkenau, we will be working alongside local villagers and university students to restore the cemetery of a once vibrant Jewish community. By immersing ourselves in these foreign cultures, Project Preservation seeks to restore the past for the future.
This year’s project will take place in Korcyna, Poland, about 3 hours east of Krakow.
Dates of Trip: June 11th – June 22nd (We will leave right after graduation and return in time for 12X). Students often travel in Europe after the official end date if they choose to do so.
Application DUE: FEBRUARY 17th. All undergraduates who are on in the spring are eligible to apply.
