Holocaust: History and Memory
Thursdays, 5:45 - 7:45 pm
February 28 - April 25 (class will not meet March 28)

This course provides an introduction to the genocide of the Jews (and homosexuals, Roma, the physically and mentally disabled, and Jehovah's Witnesses) of Europe. We will begin with the Weimar Republic and Hitler's rise to power in 1932, then examine the development of anti-Jewish policies in Nazi Germany and why the majority of Germans became so-called bystanders. We will discuss the aftermath of the Holocaust and World War II including the ways in which the Holocaust is remembered (or denied) in contemporary America. Eight sessions, $190.

Laura Weinstein holds a Ph.D. in history from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and she is a freelance writer. She has taught courses at UW, and the Newberry Library.
