About this course:

In this continuation of the “Coming to Terms with the Holocaust” series, we begin our investigation of Hitler’s concentration camps with their historical roots in Britain’s Boer War (1900-02) and America’s occupation of the Philippines (1901-2). First we examine the evolution of Konzentrationslager, also referred to as KZ, from the ‘wild’ jails established by the Sturmabteilung during the seizure of power in 1933 to the creation of death camps in eastern Poland and industrialized murder at Auschwitz. Then we study three individual camps – Mittelbau-Dora, Ravensbrück, and Bergen-Belsen. Finally, we consider the fate of KZ inmates as the war drew to an end: first, the bizarre death marches which killed more than 250,000 innocents; and second, the infamous Gardelegen Massacre on April 13, 1945 and its aftermath. Note:  Although this course takes place in a classroom, the instructor will teach remotely via video conferencing. The interaction between the instructor and his students take places via a camera and microphone.
