Coming to Terms with the Holocaust--Part III: Nazis, Propaganda, and the Jews
Osher (50+). In this course, we discover how Nazi propaganda changed public opinion against the Jews.
About this course:In 1933, Jews represented less than 1% of Germany's population. How did Hitler, Goebbels, and the Nazi propaganda machine persuade educated, civilized Germans that this valuable, productive minority was an insidious and deadly bacillus threatening the life of their nation? Through a vigorous examination of Nazi speeches, newspapers, books, posters, and films--and the response of Germany's Jewish community--we discover how the Nazis turned the hearts, minds, and very language of the German people against the Jews. 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.
