Hungary

“The Nazi Aftermath in Central Europe: History, the Media and the Holocaust” was the name of a two-week Global Field Course in Hungary carried out by four Eastern students and Professors Cesar Beltran and Martin Levin May 28-June 11, 2013. Program highlights included a tour of Parliament and a briefing by a Hungarian government official; a walking tour of the Jewish Quarter and former World War II Jewish ghetto of Budapest; and a work session with the Associated Press. A two-day touring excursion to Austria included a visit to the infamous Mauthausen labor and extermination camp, which Nazi leaders used to administer 40 other camp locations to carry out the Holocaust in that nation. The trip also included a walking tour of Budapest led by an eminent art historian, a Holocaust archives demonstration at Central European University and a quiet afternoon tea with a Holocaust survivor.
