Seven Randolph-Macon students learned about the Holocaust and Jewish Culture by
traveling through Germany and Austria during January term in 2013. Led by
German Professor Joseph Moser, students visited historic sites and learned
about the Berlin Wall, experienced authentic German food and culture, and even practiced
speaking in German.
In this video, students visit the historic site of the Wannsee Conference and the
former Anhalter and Grunewald train stations. They learned how the Nazi Party planned
the deportation of the Jewish population and the conditions in which those captured
were transported. The original footage for this video was provided by R-MC students.
This is part three of a six-part video series that will launch about this course.
These students also wrote blogs during their 17-day trip. You can follow their journey

Randolph-Macon College’s January Term:
January term or "J-term" is an immensely popular
month-long program at Randolph-Macon College. This year, more than 90 percent of
R-MC students (1,183) participated by choosing whether to immerse themselves in
another culture and study abroad, experience working in their desired career through
an internship or delve into a specific area of interest by taking an on-campus course
or research assignment.
Nearly 100 students traveled to one of 10 countries: Australia, United Kingdom,
Japan, Tanzania, Hungary, China, Guatemala, Germany, Austria and New Zealand. This
year, Randolph-Macon supplied video cameras to several of the classes so that students
and professors could chronicle their time abroad. They returned with video blogs
that shared their adventures and will make you feel as though you traveled with
