A Transnational History of the Holocaust: Sources (HIH3162)

30 credits

Between 1933 and 1945, Jews in eventually more than thirty present-day states across Europe as well as North Africa experienced persecution and mass murder at the hands of Nazi Germany, Axis states, collaborators and neighbours, provoking a range of responses from occupied, neutral and Allied states, civil societies and Jewish communities internationally. This module aims to introduce students to the sources documenting this upheaval, exploring the voluminous documentation generated by perpetrators, bystanders and in particular the victims themselves, which is now available in digitised or published form. No knowledge of a foreign language is required.
