Additional Course Details: 

The Holocaust was one of the most significant global tragedies in the 20th century, and its legacy continues to impact international relations and law, concerns about minority rights and discrimination, and the threat of genocide and state violence against vulnerable populations. This course will chart both historical events associated with the Holocaust and the ways that the Holocaust has been represented in memorials, literature, and popular media, and will pay particular attention to the voices of survivors and how their experiences have been collected and preserved. Topics will include the process of discrimination, persecution, and deportation of populations targeted by the Nazis and their allies; the varied experiences of people incarcerated in concentration or factory camps, as well as those in hiding; the end of the war, Nuremberg proceedings and Frankfurt "Auschwitz trials"; the impact of post-war asylum-seekers and the establishment of the state of Israel; historical and current controversies in memorializing the Holocaust; and the emergence of the survivor memoir as a genre and its influence on oral history.
