Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Professor Gillerman is very passionate about this subject. She is very clear and concise in her lectures and offers all of the historical information before coming to any conclusion. This Professor avoids personal bias and is very knowledgeable about this subject. If you are a Political Science or International Relations major, or even if you are interested in really learning about the Holocaust, I highly recommend taking this class to fulfill one of your GE requirements
This course made me look at the historical background and implications of the Holocaust in another light. After taking this course, I realized I did not have adequate knowledge about the Holocaust prior to taking this course. The professor begins the class with the end of WWI and the effects of it on Northern Europe, and then leads into Hitler's rise to power. She continues through WWII and concludes the class with a broader look at other genocides around the world and what Germany is like today.

Advice for students:
It is very important to attend all lectures and discussion sections. Attendance is not taken for lectures but always in the discussion sections. The Professor presents a great deal of important information during her lectures and it is essential to take good notes so that you will have this available when studying for your exams and gathering information for your term paper.
