Joanna Kopacka


Joanna just completed her Master’s degree in Holocaust Studies at the University of Haifa, Israel. Her research focused on the bystander phenomenon. During her studies, Joanna interned in Yad Vashem and participated in the project of volunteer work with Holocaust survivors. Beyond academia, she is dedicated to issues of discrimination, xenophobia and the fight for a more inclusive and welcoming Europe. She has been a Campaigns Assistant at WeMove.EU. While in Poland, she was involved in coordinating the first field survey held by “Matzeva Project”. She also assisted the chief curator of a contemporary art exhibition entitled “Women Commentators”. As her involvement in the transparency project “I Have a Right to Know” triggered her interest in non-governmental activity and human rights advocacy, she hopes to continue working and contributing to this field in the future. Joanna is a 2016 Humanity in Action Senior Fellow.
