JUDAIC 296. Perspectives on the Holocaust.

Section 101.

Instructor(s): Judith Nysenholc

Prerequisites & Distribution: (3). (HU).

R&E Foreign Lit

Credits: (4; 3 in the half-term).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

As "an event at the limits," the Holocaust has forced us to reconsider comfortable assumptions about human nature and modernity. In this course, we will explore questions concerning the perpetrators' motivations, the victims' responses, and the functions of post-Holocaust remembrances. Our overarching questions will be: How to understand? How to live after? And how best to remember? The course consists of two parts: "history" and "memory." The first half is devoted to antecedents (antisemitism, the rise of Nazism), and most importantly, to the war years, focusing especially on (in)human behavior during the Holocaust; in the second half of the course, we will discuss its aftermath, in particular issues of testimony, representation, and memorialization. We will rely on a variety of sources in our exploration history, fiction, film, poetry, music, art, survivors' live testimonies. Requirements: class participation, frequent short response papers, midterm, take-home final.
