HIST 100: Western Civilization Reading Guide 4: Christopher Browning, Ordinary Men Our final reading assignment of the semester moves us in a completely different direction in terms of type of source, tone, and importance to the larger themes of western civilization. This topic is the Final Solution, the decision by the Nazi regime to murder the Jews of Europe during World War II. Browning is one of the world’s foremost experts on the Final Solution, and the work we will be reading is a secondary source (in contrast to the primary sources we’ve been reading so far) investigating one particular aspect of that history. This subject, as you well know, is both difficult to address and yet extremely important to our confrontation with world history on a moral, philosophical, and emotional level. Your assignment is to read the entire book before our planned class discussion on Monday, Dec. 1 . As you read and prepare for discussion, please keep in mind the following questions: 1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
