Who has not heard of the Holocaust? Some people of course, but it is difficult in today’s world to escape being aware of what happened to the Jews of Europe during World War II. Histories, memoirs, diaries, and novels, continue to flood bookstores, while films continue to be made. And if we add to the list memorials and museums as sources of knowledge, as well as college courses like this one, we can begin to understand how and why the Holocaust is so widely known. But are all these sources reliable as well as valuable? That will be only one of the many questions we will explore this semester.

Course Requirements:

The format of this class will be discussion, with occasional lectures interspersed. There will be a midterm, paper, and final exam.
