Course Description

The Holocaust: History, Literature & Popular Culture (4 cr)
Mirjam Zadoff
HIST-H 620 Colloquium in Modern West European History (30474)
R 4:00-6:00 pm (BH 335)

Holocaust remembrance has become a central part of post-war politics and culture in many countries. Recently, with populism on the rise and survivors becoming few, this culture is being endangered. In this course we’ll try to assess, in what ways the Holocaust is being remembered in Europe, the US, and Israel – in public commemorations, historical scholarship, and in popular culture. We’ll read, watch, and discuss recent scholarship, documentaries, feature films, novels, poetry, art, and music. How did this culture of remembrance change over the past decades, and what are the implications for the future?
