The Final Exam Essay Question: Ordinary Men versus Hitler’s Willing Executioners Please address each of the sub-points in this four-step essay question. 1. What are Daniel Goldhagen’s logical criteria for an adequate explanation of the German perpetrators’ conduct in the Holocaust? What in your view is the key evidence in support of his explanation of the perpetrators’ conduct? Why does Goldhagen reject explanations of the perpetrators’ conduct (including Browning’s) that rely upon situationally specific factors? 2. In his afterward to Ordinary Men, Christopher Browning raises four key objections to Goldhagen’s approach. In particular Browning (a) critiques Daniel Goldhagen’s account of German anti-Semitism, (b) insists that comparable Nazi killings took place against non-Jewish victims, (c) criticizes Goldhagen’s use of evidence from the Jozefow massacre, and (d) rejects a monocausal account of the perpetrators’ motivation. Review the reasoning and evidence that Browning uses to make these four key objections.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
