REES 110 The Holocaust

The Holocaust was arguably the most pernicious Jewish catastrophe; it continues to challenge our understanding of historical processes, our systems of values, and our notions of culture. What ideology facilitated it? Was it directed exclusively at Jews? Who were its first victims? Who was responsible for it – Hitler, Germans, and/or other accomplices? In this course, we will discuss these and other questions by studying primary and secondary sources according to a panoramic approach known as “integrated history.” [GM2, H, V]
