Course Description: 
This course will immerse students in the history of the Holocaust and the ways in which its remembrance reflects distinct national projects. Students will examine the interrelated individuals, institutions, historical events, and ideologies that contributed to the state-sponsored murder of 6 million European Jews. They will also consider the ways in which this historical event has been remembered and commemorated, and the role this remembrance has played in the creation and recreation of national identities. Students will explore these topics in four key national contexts: the United States, Germany, Poland, and Denmark through the examination of both museums and memorials. These places will encourage students to compare the national histories entwined in the history and remembrance of the Holocaust, highlighting similarities and differences and providing students with a complex understanding of this historical topic. While the focus of the course will be on the attempted genocide of the Jews, students will also have the opportunity to study memorials and monuments dedicated to other groups persecuted by the Nazis, including the Roma Sinti, gays and lesbians, Soviet POWs, and Poles.
