"The program gave me an excellent overview of the field from a global perspective and enhanced my research skills. My internship at the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish people laid the foundations of my current PhD research on the largest German-Jewish organization (Centralverein) in its last ten years of existence."


Klara Jackl, Poland

"During my internship at Yahad-In Unum, I worked on testimonies of Polish witnesses of executions, as well as notes posted on Yahad's online map of killing sites. This gave me a rare opportunity to take a closer look into historical events from a new perspective and gain valuable professional experience."
