Calendar Feb 24, 2020 at 6 pm, runs for 4 weeks

This 4 week course will begin with a history of the Holocaust including a brief history of the Jewish Religion, its persecution and the progression of the Nazi Ideology throughout Europe. We will then make the connection with the exploration of different ethical, legal, and moral issues related to the Holocaust. We will also explore modern day genocides in places like Rwanda, Darfur, and Bosnia. Other examples of genocide will also be discussed, for example, the Armenian Genocide in the early 1900s - which the United States just designated as a genocide. To tackle these difficult topics, we will be using first hand accounts from victims and survivors through the use of letters, diary excerpts, and testimony from survivors. There is no text book for this class - but you will receive information from me, the internet, and materials that I handout!
