HIST 248 History of the Holocaust 4.0 Credits

This course surveys Nazi Germany's systematic attempt to exterminate the Jews of Europe between 1941 and 1945. The course stresses the historical study of the Holocaust: the course of events, their origin and context, and their repercussions. We study the general context of the 1930's and 1940's, the perpetrators and their relevant ideology and administrative systems, the victims and intended victims, and also the "bystanders", those among whom the round-ups and extermination took place in Europe as well as in the US. The materials include historical documents, memoirs, and historical accounts, and a variety of films.
