Art in Extremis: Creative Resistance During the Holocaust (HGS 612/712)

This course surveys art produced in extremis during the Holocaust, by individuals in exile or in the camps and ghettos. Together, we will explore how victims used artistic expression as both a means of documentation and as a form of “creative resistance” to communicate their protest, despair or hope. Course readings couple secondary literature with primary sources and ego documents of the period, such as the artists’ own writings and diaries.
