FASPE Journalism 2018

The Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE) offers a unique historical lens to engage journalism, medical, seminary, business, and law students in an intensive course of study focused on contemporary ethics in their professions. FASPE Fellows are granted an all-expenses paid two-week trip to Germany and Poland to learn about the role of their chosen profession in Nazi Germany and to use that historic framework to explore the ethical issues facing their field today.

The FASPE Journalism program examines in particular the roles played by journalists and editors in Germany and the United States during the 1930s and 1940s, underscoring the reality that moral codes governing the profession can break down or be distorted with devastating consequences. With a greater understanding of the power of their profession, FASPE hopes our Journalism Fellows are better positioned (and more willing) to address various contemporary ethical issues facing reporters and editors today. The program integrates historical, cultural, philosophical and literary sources; survivor testimony; and on-site workshops in Berlin, Krakow, and Auschwitz.

Lead support for FASPE is provided by C. David Goldman, Frederick and Margaret Marino, and the Eder Family Foundation.
