JS 211 Final Study GuideFall 2018Section I. Essay on Primary Sources. 40 points You will be given two excerpts from primary sources that we have analyzed either in lecture or discussion section. You will be asked to analyze the excerpts, and put the texts in conversation with one another. To most fully analyze the primary sources, you should plan to include basic information about the texts, (including the author, purpose, date, and historical context), identify the key ideas in the excerpts you have been given, and connect the excerpts to the larger documents from which the excerpts have been taken. Finally, you should be prepared to discuss what light these documents shed on the historical periods in which they arose, and on the phenomena they represent. The primary sources examined since the midterm include: Edwin Landau and Martha Appel memoir excerpts, Nuremburg Laws, Schnellbrief (Urgent Memo), Warsaw Diary of Chaim Kaplan, Primo Levi’s Survival in Auschwitz,
