Description

This course is a thorough examination of antisemitism and the Holocaust in the Netherlands and beyond through the careful analysis of the Diary of Anne Frank, its film, stage and television adaptations, and related materials. It tells the story and legacy of the Diary in a country that lost around 75% of its Jewish population in the Holocaust, the highest percentage by far in occupied Western Europe. The course looks to Dutch history and society, and especially histories of segregation and racism, to explain the devastating number, to examine its effects, and to ask how we can recognize and combat racism and persecution today. Significant links are made to anti-Black racism in the Netherlands and the US. Topics include Jewish migration, Jewish Amsterdam, antisemitism and colonial racism, bystanding versus rescue, Holocaust denial, and the fictionalization and appropriation of Anne Frank. Assigned reading forms the basis for daily writing and critical in-class discussion, and prepares students for writing graded research papers.
