HS 474 - Holocaust Memory in Germany and America

(3.00 cr.)

Prerequisite: One HS 100-level course, one HS 300-level course. By the early twenty-first century, the Holocaust—the murder of six million European Jews—had come to represent the epitome of evil, an event in history that stands as the reference point for contemporary morality. In 1945, this was not as clear. This course explores how the meaning of the Holocaust as a singular event emerged and changed across generations after 1945 in two very different national contexts: Germany and America. The class examines the role of public history sites such as exhibitions, memorials, and museums, and popular culture such as films and literature, and scholarly debates. Written or electronic permission of the instructor. GT/IU
