FASPE is a set of innovative programs for students in professional schools designed to address contemporary ethical issues through a unique historical context. Fellowships provide business, journalism, law, medical, and seminary students with a 12-day trip to Germany and Poland where the actions of professionals during the Holocaust and in Nazi Germany serve as a backdrop for an intensive course of study on the current ethical challenges in their fields. FASPE invokes the power of place—the first-hand experience of visiting Auschwitz and other historic sites—to engage Fellows in applying the lessons of history to the ethical issues they face today.

Take a look at the 2016 FASPE Journalism blog with coverage and details about the 2015 Journalism trip.

Lead support for FASPE is provided by C. David Goldman, Frederick and Margaret Marino, and the Eder Family Foundation. FASPE is also supported by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany: Rabbi Israel Miller Fund for Shoah Research, Documentation and Education.
