JWST 234 - Good and Evil: Ethics and Decision Making in the Holocaust

Next Offered: 2010-2011
Semester Offered: Second Semester
Credits (Range): 3 to 4 Hours
Attribute: 3 to 4 SS, CD, WR

This course focuses on the decision making of five groups: German civilians, Jews, allies, churches, rescuers, and bystanders during the Nazi era; on the often unconscious value judgments that we bring to the study of this subject; and the basis for expectation that individuals, groups, or governments behave ethically in extreme situations. Aside from readings, some films and possible lectures by outside specialists will be required. Previous historical study of the Holocaust strongly recommended. Enrollment Limit: 25.
