Coming to Terms with the Holocaust, Part 5: Eyewitnesses to the Holocaust

GENINT 741.500

Osher (50+). This course explores the experiences of the eyewitnesses to the Holocaust.


About this course:

In this course, we explore—through their own words—the experiences and consciences of Nazi perpetrators, bystanders and Jews condemned to the ghettos and the death camps. We begin with the letters and diaries of men who served on the front lines of the murder units. Then we look closely at a representative German village which drove out its Jewish residents and residents' recollections of their home. We explore the thinking of descendants of the leaders of the Reich about the crimes their parents and grandparents committed. And we close with a study of the rise and fall of Vilnius, Lithuania; the one-time Jerusalem of Europe. This course will be recorded. Students will have access to videos for the duration of the course.
