Poland-Related Courses

HIST-420 The Holocaust @
COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course will confront the background, events, and consequences of the extermination of European Jews during World War II. Students will be introduced to traditions of European racism and anti-Semitism, as well as the cultural, political, diplomatic, and social conditions in Germany and elsewhere that helped to make the Holocaust possible. We will then turn to a study of the rise of National Socialism, its vision for a new Europe, and the role of anti-Semitism in Nazi ideology and practice, culminating in an analysis of both the politics and the machinery of genocide. Finally, we will address issues of resistance, aid to the victims and, ultimately, the ways in which our culture and others remember, commemorate, or even forget the Holocaust.
