Despite the frequency with which students from high schools and colleges worldwide visit Holocaust death camps, it was no simple matter for Issa Jameel when he was asked whether he wanted to visit Auschwitz. 

For Jameel, a Palestinian master’s student from Al-Quds University in Jerusalem, the opportunity was laced with political and nationalistic issues his peers don’t have to deal with. According to Jameel, it was only when he realized it would be an important educational experience to learn about the Jews in the Holocaust during World War II that he was convinced and signed-on as student coordinator for the trip.
