HIST 256 Germany & the World of Hitler 4.0 Credits

The course explores Germany’s history from 1914 to 1945 through the historical figure of Hitler. This most notorious character will take students from gas warfare in the trenches of the First World War to the radical right wing circles of Munich; from Weimar culture to the Nazi seizure of power in 1933; from mass party rallies to the network of German highways; from the invasion of Poland to the occupation of the Soviet Union; from Auschwitz to Berlin ravaged by bombs and hunger. While placing Hitler in the wider context of European contemporary history students will enquire about the importance of individual figures in general historical dynamics.
