HIST290 - History of the Holocaust

Course Details

Course Code: HIST290 Course ID: 3050 Credit Hours: 3 Level: Undergraduate

This course is an overview of the major historical, political, cultural, religious, and military issues associated with the Holocaust. It will examine how the anti-Semitic propaganda of the early Nazi Party manifested itself into a legitimate political platform, evolving into state sponsored legal legislation, and culminating into an industrialized killing industry. Students will be introduced to the principle historical figures, events and time lines regarding the birth of the Nazi Party, their taking control of the German nation, and finally their political and military actions against those deemed ‘subhuman’. In addition, students will also become well-versed in The Hague and Geneva Conventions regarding the roles of the military and the protective status and qualifications of noncombatants. (Prerequisites: HIST300/HS334 for History and Military History majors only)
