2022 International Teacher Travel Opportunities
Central Europe and the Holocaust July 2022
July 27-August 5, 2022
Enrollment deadline: JUNE 30, 2021
Travel to Berlin, Warsaw, Krakow, and Prague with students and teachers interested in studying the Holocaust in Europe. Visit museums, former ghetto areas, synagogues, and Auschwitz concentration camp in a full day of exploration. This trip was designed to promote a dialogue with students and teachers about this important history, so you can also invite students to the tour. The downside? You have to pay for the tour, but can make monthly payments up until a month before you go! You can also find organizations to provide grants and scholarships for your travel, which we can help you do.
This trip is organized by Laurie Schaefer in Winston-Salem, NC. She has led tours with EF tours for over twenty years and is an experienced Holocaust educator in WSFCS. Flights will leave out of Greensboro, NC. Contact Laurie with any questions or request a Zoom meeting to have all of your questions answered!
