HIST 150

Topic Course Title

Nazi Germany: History and Film

Topic Course Description

Introduction to Historical Thinking--Nazi Germany: History and Film (1). This class will examine the history of Nazi Germany through three interconnected approaches. First, we will read important academic scholarship on the darkest period in German history, in order to explain the Nazis’ coming to power, the Holocaust, and the eventual defeat of the Nazi regime. Second, we will study a range of documents from the Nazi period itself, including political texts written by members of the regime, propaganda posters, and diaries by victims of Nazi persecution. Third, we will watch a number of classic movies about the Nazi period. Throughout the semester, we will work towards a complex understanding of Nazi rule, and we will discuss the relative strengths and weaknesses of these three kinds of sources.
