Nazi Germany and the Holocaust

HNRS 2013 Sec. 2 - Spring 2016

Professor David Culbert Department of History

Tu 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM
253 Himes

This seminar is intended to introduce able students to selected major events in the history of Nazi Germany, 1933-1945, as well as the Holocaust—the eradication of European Jewry. Students will be introduced to a variety of styles of historical explanation—memoirs, polemics, novels, and works of analysis by professional historians. The moral dimension of these troubled times will not be ignored, but will not serve as the sole device by which to evaluate Germans and German history. This seminar will make particular use of appropriate video and DVD materials. Assigned reading will be no more than 150 pages per week; each week students will write a 2-3 page paper. There will be a midterm and a final exam. The seminar is limited to 15 students
