  3. An about the author sentence or paragraph, in which you describe: yourself (major, class year, relevant interests), and the extent of your background in German/European history (e.g. personal/family connections, previous coursework, travel). You might also give any personal information about why you chose your particular topic.
    Example: I am a senior history major who has taken 3 courses in European and Holocaust history. One of my professors mentioned that when he was in college, none of his textbooks discussed the Holocaust. I wondered when they started including substantial discussions of it.
  4. An abstract of your paper: about 4 or 5 sentences, in which you briefly describe what your paper is about, what your sources were, and state your main thesis or result.
    Example "I have examined five different sources about Oskar Schindler's life and have found that although his behavior was indeed heroic, aspects of his life story have been much exaggerated…"
  5. The text of your paper. Please use 1.5 or double spacing. Do not use underlining, only bold and italics (underlining will be for links). Format block quotations with Format-Style-Block Text (set at .5 left indent, and 12point space after).
  6. Your bibliography, with the full bibliographic information for all primary sources, books, articles and internet sources you used, and important works that you were not able to obtain. You may include brief annotations about them.
