Winter Semester 2013: 28 June– 15 July, 2013
This intensive unit explores modern history of European Jews before and after the Holocaust. Students will travel to the major centres of interwar Jewish life in France, Italy, Germany, Poland and Lithuania, and encounter the diverse heritage of Jewish life in each country. The unit will explore issues central to this period and the individuals who shaped their times.
Students will visit museums, synagogues, cemetries, destroyed ghettos and sites of mass murder such as Auschwitz – Birkenau. We will ask what remains of the past by looking at the ways in which the history of European Jews is being memorialised and renewed through efforts at reconstruction, immigration, and commemoration.
