Coming to Terms with the Holocaust, Part I: A Crime Without a Name

HUMANIT 731.110

Osher (50+). In this course, we explore the events and attitudes leading up to the Holocaust.


About this course:

In this newly revised and reconsidered series, through still images and film, we begin by tracing institutionalized anti-Judaism to its roots in medieval German culture. Then we follow its arc through the rise of the Nazis, the chancellorship of Adolf Hitler, and the devaluation of human life, which was the prelude to the Holocaust. 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.
