JWST 215 Reconstructing History After Genocide 3.0 Credits

The course explores educational restitution to peoples who are victims of genocide. After conceptualizing the world’s responsibility to maintain its cultures and help victims of genocide to recover their history, the class will compare educational efforts to document life before the destruction in places such as Rwanda, the former Yugoslavia and among Native Americans. Our main focus will be the politics of teaching about Polish Jewry, the largest community of Jews before WW II that was destroyed by the Nazis in the Holocaust. Students will evaluate sources that describe Jewish life in one city, Lublin, Poland.
