  • Overview

    This course explores the origins, causes and aftermath of the Nazi attempt to exterminate European Jews in an industrialized and systematic act of genocide from 1933-1945. Following a survey of the history of Antisemitism in its various forms, the course will cover German decisions and policies and an analysis of European and American political reactions and policies in the face of unfolding events. Although the approach of this course is strongly historical and political, the Shoah will also be examined from a psychological and sociological perspective. Lectures and class discussions will be supplemented by the viewing of a number of films and documentaries.
