HIST 339 - Germany, Nazism, and the Holocaust

4 credits
This course moves from early German national history, through World War One and the crises of Weimar, in an effort to understand the ascent of Nazism as an ideology and political movement, as well as Hitler’s rise to power. Focus then turns to Germany’s great crimes; war, conquest, and, especially, the Holocaust. Major themes include: traditions of authoritarianism; the nature and mobilization of German anti-Semitism; and the causes, course, and character of the Holocaust, examined through the experiences of its victims and perpetrators. Offered in alternate years. CLA-Breadth/Humanities
