Professor: Robert W. Brown

Course Description

History 4300 is an in-depth and interdisciplinary history and analysis of Germany during the Nazi period (1933-1945). It begins with a chronological overview of Nazi Germany, from its origins during the Weimar Republic to its destruction at the end of World War II. The course's central section focuses on the discussion and analysis of primary materials dealing with selected aspects of the Nazi period, such as ideology, family life and women, education, propaganda, the arts, the war, and the Holocaust. The course concludes with an evaluation of the Nazi legacy, and it considers, among other topics, the problem of writing the history of Nazi Germany, the Historikerstreit, the "Germans historians' dispute" of the 1980s, and the difficulty of designing memorials and/or museums for the Nazi era and the Holocaust.
