Description

This class presents students with the historical background and current scholarly debate about the best documented genocide in recent history. A combination of race based thinking, radical nationalism and brutality occasioned by war opened the door for the Nazi Party to lead Germans and other Europeans in a systematic campaign to eliminate the Jews. Students will explore a variety of sources produced during and after the period, including films, posters and literature. Raised will be questions about the limits of obedience to authority, what constitutes race or ethnic differences, and ultimately whether or not guilt for related crimes can ever be forgiven. SS
