Current topic description: This course examines the programs of
persecution and mass murder carried out by the Nazi German regime
between 1933 and 1945. We will consider not only the development of
Nazi Germany as a "racial state", but also the role of ideologies,
such as antisemitism, nationalism, and racism, in shaping policies of
exclusion in a European context. Concomitantly, the class will
consider how subsequent generations commemorated and portrayed the
memory of the Holocaust in both official and popular forms.
