This course will examine the events of the Holocaust (1933-1945), the systemic, planned annihilation of European Jews and other groups by Nazi Germany, through the study of literature and film. Content will include, but is not limited to, the investigation of human behavior during this period and an understanding of the ramifications of prejudice, racism, and stereotyping. This course is designed to give students an understanding of the historical, political, and aesthetic import surrounding the attempted destruction by Nazi Germany and how the Holocaust been appropriated and reconfigured by artists, poets, and filmmakers. Through an analysis of Holocaust literature, film, and visual media, we will investigate the connections between history, trauma, witnessing, and representation. Additionally, we will explore how authors, filmmakers, and artists depict events that shatter traditional forms of perception and comprehension and question how history, memory, and imagination coalesce in their respective texts. These concepts will be explored throughout this course through close readings, film studies, art analysis, historical research, and class discussions.
