Trips & Class
For the overnight summer II trip, students went to the world
renowned Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (https://www.kviff.com/en/news/) and to
see the unique shrine of St. Maurus in Bečov (https://www.zamek-becov.cz/the-shrine-st-maurus/).
Students of Art and Architecture, along with students of
Psychoanalysis and Society explored Terezín as an integral part of these
courses. Terezín served as a transit camp to other concentration camps during
World War II and the town itself was turned into a ghetto for those interned by
the Nazi regime.
