We will start by surveying the positions that Jews occupied in European society prior to World War II as a way of understanding the historical development of antisemitism. Our attention then will turn to Germany and Hitler’s policies from 1923 to 1945. Finally, we will explore how the Holocaust was integrated into mid- to late-twentieth century thought about hatred, racial prejudice, and Jewishness. Throughout the class, we will discuss the relationship between antisemitism and other forms of group hatred. Course Structure Lecture: With only a few exceptions, I will lecture on Mondays and Wednesdays. Discussion: Most Fridays will be reserved for class discussion and other group activities.
