The Holocaust: Confronting the Perpetrators

ID : 638   
« back to classes page
Among the most troubling and perplexing issues raised by the Holocaust is how and why persons, who in other circumstances might well have lived ordinary lives, became participants in the mass murder of a defenseless people. This course attempts to address this subject by examining a range of perpetrators from those at the highest levels of power in Nazi Germany (Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler), to those who ran the death camps (Franz Stangl), to the largely unknown thousands who constituted the killing squads. The reading and discussion of selected documents and Christopher Browning’s classic study, Ordinary Men, will help us engage with this issue.
