CR 549 Intro to Holocaust and Genocide Studies

Introduction to Holocaust and Genocide Studies presents the historical context of the Holocaust, including timelines and events, as a means to understand how the definitions and understandings of genocide and atrocity have developed in response. Diverse stories of subsequent atrocities will be presented, and students will have the opportunity to draw parallels between the past and current events in the world, enhancing a robust and complex understanding of genocide. We will focus on genocide prevention, offering models of successful prevention noting key precursors to genocide/atrocities.
