Germany-Poland Travel Course: Human Dignity Tour – Asbury University
Shapemaximize playTriangle

Travel Course Dates: TBA

Led by Dr. Paul Nesselroade

AN INTEGRATIVE ENRICHMENT AND HOLOCAUST-THEMED TRAVEL COURSE:  This course will examine the relationship between the ideas, imagery, and personalities found within the social and life sciences with the concept of inherent human dignity. Focus will be placed on the historical conflict found in the eugenics movement and culminating in the atrocities committed in Europe during WWII. However, more contemporary issues will also be discussed. Each year the trip takes place near the beginning of the Summer Term.

Dr. Nesselroade’s Human Dignity Tour is profoundly powerful. Students of every field of interest will enjoy being immersed in European culture while simultaneously being challenged to ask crucial questions about the nature of humanity as they walk through some of history’s greatest tragedies. It is a trip that is well worth the time, money, and attention.
