JHP 3154 - The Holocaust: Interpretation, Memory, and Representation (3)

When Offered: Spring
This upper-level course examines key scholarly debates in the study of the Holocaust’s perpetrators, victims, and bystanders. The class also analyzes the memorialization and often-conflicting representations of the Holocaust in German, Israeli, and American societies after 1945. It demonstrates how the Holocaust does not only exist as a devastating reality of Jewish history, but has also become an integral component of global history with a profound impact on our world today. The course evolves around a Center-supported research trip during spring break that alternates between Holocaust memorials and archives in Washington, D.C., Germany/Poland, and Israel.
