The Holocaust in Prague, Czech Republic
Fall 2018 Global Seminar

 
Program Overview
The Holocaust, the murder of six million Jews by Germans and their collaborators in Nazi-occupied Europe during World War II, is one of the most central events in modern history. Studying the Holocaust in Prague offers students keen visuals and experiences to understand the magnitude and specificity of this genocide. Prague was home to a large and assimilated Jewish population before the war, and we will tour all the main Jewish sites in town. We will also take field trips to the concentration camp, Terezin, and the village of Lidice, which the Nazis destroyed. Students will also travel for a 3-day excursion to Krakow, Poland to visit the death camp, Auschwitz, and Jewish Krakow.

This class will focus on Jewish life before, during, and after the Holocaust. The main thrust of our study will consider Jewish experiences and forms of resistance inside and outside the camps, and the ways victims worked to maintain their humanity. Students will read primary source materials including films, and will write reflective and analytical papers. In addition, students will keep a reflective photo journal of the physical sites  we tour.
