Polish Studies at Polish Studies at George Mason University
The University, whose principal campus is in Fairfax, Virginia, came into being in 1957. With a total of over 28,000 students on its three campuses in the Washington, D.C., area, George Mason University has emerged in the last decade as a major university. The university server lists no courses in Polish Studies as such, though a couple of Poland-related courses are offered. Additionally, a number of the faculty have studied and obtained degrees at Polish universities.
Seminar examines the Holocaust -- the destruction of European Jewry -- through testimonies of survivors and narratives of historians. Topics include the rise of Nazism; the segregation of Jews in ghettos in Nazi-occupied Poland; Jewish life in the ghettos; the experience of Western European countries under Nazi occupation; labor and concentration camps; Christian rescuers; Jewish resistance; and reflections on the Holocaust today
Examines the destruction of European Jewry in the Holocaust through the eyes of eyewitnesses (in diaries and survivor testimonies) as well as in the narratives of historians. We will trace rise of Nazism in Germany, that country's invasions of Poland and Western Europe, its application of Nazi doctrines, Jewish resistance, Christian rescuers, and the concentration camps. Also examines current debates about the Holocaust, the behavior of participants, and how we explain what happened.
