The Jewish Holocaust, enacted during the Second World War by the National Socialist German regime, generated artistic upheaval and responses, including far-reaching musical repercussions. This course investigates and engages with music experienced, performed, and created during and in response to the mass murder of European Jews during WWII. Topics include banned music, music created and performed in the camps and ghettos, and post-war musical reflections. Students will read and listen/view assigned material (all made available on Canvas) in advance of class. They are expected to participate in discussions of material, to introduce and lead the discussion at least twice during the semester. The course will conclude with a 15-page research paper on a related topic of the student’s choice.
