HIST 4845 Facing the Past in Post-World War II Europe: Nazis, Collaborators, Bystanders, Resisters (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course examines the political and intellectual legacies of the interwar years and World War II in Europe. Across the continent, people did not only face the challenge of material rebuilding, but they were also forced to confront the intellectual and political consequences of fascism, National Socialism, collaboration, resistance, and civil war. We will study European societies on both sides of the Iron Curtain and ask to what degree the processes of confronting the past in Eastern and Western Europe were influenced by the specific postwar conditions.
