About this course:

As the most extensively documented genocide in history--and the most intensively investigated, interrogated and debated--the Holocaust in Europe (1933-1945) has much to teach us about hatred, demagoguery, impersonal violence, state-sponsored murder on an industrial scale, and ourselves. In this second course of the series, we complete our broad overview of the Holocaust. We trace the tangled path that led from exclusionary Nazi Antisemitism to Einsatzgruppen murder squads and, inevitably, gas chambers. We investigate the ghettoization of the Jews of Eastern Europe, the radical and far-reaching decisions at the Wannsee Conference, and the establishment of the five concentration camps. We also study the creation and operation of Auschwitz and conclude with an interrogation of the Nuremberg trials. 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.
