This course will survey the historical events and intellectual
developments leading up to, and surrounding the destruction of European
Jewry during World War II. We will examine the Holocaust against the
backdrop of modern Jewish and modern German history. The course is divided
into two main parts; (1) the historical background to the crime, including
an examination of Nazi policy toward the Jews until 1939; and (2) the
destruction of European Jewry, 1939-1945. This course satisfies the Arts
and Humanities distributional requirement.
