The premeditated extermination of some six million human beings during the Second World War represents a crime of incomprehensible proportions from which many people recoil in disgust. Nevertheless, the detailed study of the Holocaust has furnished posterity with many important lessons. This course will explore the origins of anti-Semitism in Europe, examine the psyche of Hitler, and trace the rise of the Nazis in Germany. It will investigate their savage persecution of Jews and other minorities, and their relentless progression to genocide. Finally, the enduring impact of the Holocaust will be carefully analysed.
