 EXPLORING THE LIVES OF THOSE HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS LIVING IN EUROPE DURING WORLD WAR II

The Kupferberg Holocaust Center is seeking 12 students to participate in this internship during the spring 2013 semester.  Students selected to participate in this project will meet weekly for one hour at the Holocaust Center to examine and discuss the impact World War II had on those residents living in Europe’s Jewish communities. This will be done through readings, videos, group discussions, and presentations by local residents living in Europe at that time.

Student interns will be trained to use this knowledge to conduct an intensive interview of local survivors and present his/her story to the other interns as well as interested members of the Queensborough Community College community. 

There is a stipend of $360 for successfully completing this project.

Interested students should send their resume, letter of interest, and copy of their schedule for the current semester to Dr. Arthur Flug, Executive Director at AFlug@qcc.cuny.edu. All three items must be received in order for your application to be considered.

Should you have any questions as to applying, please contact Dr. Arthur Flug at: 718-281-5770.
