The Holocaust: Exploring How and Why It Happened, and Why Studying It Is Still Important (offered in Hingham)  

The Holocaust, Nazi Germany’s slaughter of six-million Jews during World War II, was perhaps the greatest organized crime in history. It is important for current and future generations to understand how it happened and why. Through a combination of lectures, recommended readings, and discussions, this course will explore the remote and proximate causes of the Holocaust: how the strategy and tactics of Germany’s “Final Solution” were developed and executed; the response of Allied nations, particularly the United States, as the Holocaust unfolded; the experiences of the people who were involved as perpetrators, victims, and resisters; and the need for continued education about the Holocaust.
