Holocaust: Victims and Oppressors
The rise of Nazism remains one of the most studied phenomena in modern history. This course will examine the causes and consequences of the Holocaust. Events of the Holocaust will be examined, from the rise of Hitler to power, through the adoption of anti-Semitic laws and the implementation of the Final Solution. The Nazis used the tools of modern civilization (technology, bureaucracy and science) to persecute, alienate, transport and finally murder millions. Learning objectives are: ability to identify and analyze the causes leading up to the Holocaust; and the historical facts of the Holocaust; ability to identify, explain and discuss major issues, events and personalities during the period under study; appreciation of the universal lessons of the Holocaust; the ability to look past stereotyping and ignorance to ascertain the truth about the definition of a minority group. The class will be taught by Rick Harkavy, who is currently the rabbi of Bet Chaverim, a synagogue located in Des Moines. Previously Rabbi Harkavy was the executive director for a Holocaust Museum in New York.
