Manovill Seminar

To request an application for this year’s high school programs, please complete our inquiry form and a staff person will be in touch.

The Manovill Seminar is a brand new opportunity for high school students (grades 9 – 12) to investigate the ties between racism and antisemitism and increase their awareness of the patterns of genocide. This new seminar focuses specifically on the history of the Holocaust and Cambodian Genocide.

Students engage in discussion, hear survivor testimony, and explore items in the Tauber Archives. The program culminates with a student-driven research project to locate real-world application of themes learned during the seminar.

  • The cohort will meet Mondays, January – May, on Zoom from 5:00 – 7:00pm (PDT)
  • There will be two in-person opportunities for research on site in the Tauber Holocaust Library and an in-person field trip

Participating students in grades 9 through 11 may be invited to continue their work after the Manovill Seminar with a Manovill Research Fellowship.

Apply now! The deadline for applications is November 22nd.

For more information, please contact Andrea Struve, Director of Education, at [email protected].

The Manovill Seminar is named in memory of Lilly Manovill z’l, who courageously helped fellow Jews from the Budapest ghetto escape and survive. The program is generously underwritten by the Lilly Manovill Endrei Education Fund at JFCS.
