Course Description

In this seminar we will learn about the discipline of history by examining how the Nazi Holocaust has been represented both while it was occurring and after it ended. Our sources will include contemporary mass media reports, memoirs, films, works of fiction, scholarly books, and textbooks.
We will practice what historians do: examining primary sources, learning background information, formulating questions, conducting research, analyzing and interpreting data, and presenting our conclusions. We will tackle each of these tasks step-by-step. The course is designed for students with minimal background knowledge of the Holocaust, or of what historians do.
