Comments: This course examines the complex ways in which "religion"intersected with the Holocaust. How did centuries-old religiousdynamics fuel antisemitism and the persecution of Jews? What didJewish belief and practice look like in the ghettos and camps?Why did some religious communities stand against the Nazis whileothers stood silent? And how did Jews, Christians, and othersreimagine God in the wake of the Holocaust? These are just someof the questions that we will explore through literature, film,archival materials, and more.
