25 Israeli, Colombian, and German students can participate, and applications are open until June 19, 2023, through the website www.holocaust-remedies.com. The Summer School is not only aimed at aspiring lawyers but also at students from all humanities disciplines throughout Germany. Younger semesters are particularly encouraged to apply.
Participants will spend two weeks each at Reichmann University in Herzliya, Israel, and JLU, exploring the legal examination of Nazi crimes and presenting perspectives on how the acquired knowledge can contribute to the development of a relevant academic curriculum, which does not yet exist at German universities. Excursions to institutions relevant to the compensation processes, such as Yad Vashem and relevant ministries, are also part of the program.
The Summer School will initiate the practical phase of the project through interdisciplinary exchanges between students and researchers, focusing on proposals for possible optimizations of future legal instruments for dealing with the past.
