Holocaust Seminar | L4277
This course is unique because it is interdisciplinary, integrating legal philosophy and political philosophy with history, theology, as well as the arts to uncover the foundation of the Holocaust in the 1930s-1945. We shall examine how religion intersected with culture and political power to create the foundation for the final solution and how what has occurred may in fact be occurring again. We do not use a casebook, rather we draw from philosophical writings, novels, plays and historical works. Additionally the course uses film to further explore the issues that are foundational to genocide. There may also be an opportunity to go to DC to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum and we join together in a freedom Passover. There is a final project and no exams. We also use reflection memos to document thought and feelings evoked by this course.
