Courses: Europe 1914 -1945 (HISTB229001)

Fall 2011

Class Number: 2849
Between 1914 and 1945 over sixty million people were killed across Europe and the wider world by warfare. How can we make sense of this mass death? What were the historical conditions that made such an outcome possible? This course attempts to answer these questions by studying the causes, prosecution, and effects of WWI and WWII. Topics of study will include the political inheritance of the nineteenth century, the birth of Bolshevism and fascism, the rise and demise of the League of Nations, Nazi Europe, the Holocaust, and the origins of the Cold War.
