HIST 373H - History of the Holocaust

(3.00)
An interdisciplinary examination of the attempted destruction of the Jews of Europe and their culture, as well as the persecution of others on the basis of physical and emotional disabilities, ethnicity, politics, religion and sexual orientation at the hands of the Nazis and their collaborators during WWII. The course will briefly survey the migration of Jews to Europe, the history of anti-Semitism and “scientific” racism, the circumstances in Europe that allowed the rise of the National Socialist movement and the pre-WWII Nazi policies of discrimination. It then will focus on the perpetrators, victims and bystanders of the “Final Solution” and conclude with an analysis of the legacy of the Holocaust. Recommended Preparation: Any 100-level Social Science course or junior/senior status.
