Approximately 250 students will participate in a seminar at Yad Vashem’s International School for Holocaust Studies, which will include lectures, a movie on the burning of the Buehl synagogue, a survivor’s testimony and a performance of “Destination Unknown”.

At the conclusion of the seminar, the students will take part in a memorial ceremony at 12:00 in the Hall of Remembrance. Survivors, former residents of Germany and members of the Organization for Central European Olim will join them following a tour of Yad Vashem.
