Willimantic, Conn. - Eastern Connecticut State University's Communication and History Departments are conducting a multi-credit global field course titled "The Nazi Aftermath in Central Europe: History, Media and the Holocaust," from May 15-June 1, 2014.
The course is being offered as a 1-credit course in the summer for COM 471, a 1-credit course in the spring for HIS 470 and a 3-credit course in the summer for HIS 471. Global Field Course cost per student will be a maximum of $3,600 with a small group of 10 students, and will be less with a larger group of 15 to 20.
Students will investigate how the Holocaust is represented by the present-day Polish and Hungarian media; meet with major media, embassy officials, and historians; and visit historical and cultural sites including the Warsaw Ghetto, Auschwitz-Birchenau Concentration Camp, Krakow's Kazimierz Jewish Quarter and Budapest's Dohany Synagogue.
