This course covers the period from the Nazi rise to power in Germany in 1933 to the end of World War II. The focus of the course is the Nazi murder of nearly 6 million Jews, but we will also set these events within the larger context of the mass murder of 14 million non-combatants by the Nazis and Soviets during this period. We will use the most recent historiography on the subject and study the perpetrators, the victims, and the witnesses of the worst crimes in human history.
