In December 2008, a group of nine from SMU toured World War II death camps in Poland, including Auschwitz, Treblinka and the Warsaw Ghetto. Rick Halperin, director of the SMU Human Rights Education Program, has led SMU trips to Poland every year since 1996.
A video of the trip is available online (right). Videographer was Sherry Aikman and post production was done by Nathan Gibbs.
Read a student blog about this trip. A student blog about a previous trip also is available online (See the section for Dec. 23 - Jan. 15).
