HY 468. German Catastrophe 1815-2012. 3 Hours.

After the collapse of Nazism, Germany was in ruins, truncated to a fraction of its former size, occupied and divided by hostile powers, and stained by the infamy of barbaric war crimes, most especially the Holocaust of Europe's Jews. After first examining the rise of German power and influence in nineteenth and early twentieth-century Europe (with emphasis on German nationalism, ideological tensions, Jewish life, industrialization, and Germany's relations with its Eastern neighbors), this course examines how defeat and resulting extremism after the First World War bred an environment in which the Nazis could seize power. Step by step, we will explore how an entirely new East Central Europe was forged in the terrible fires of 1938-1948, and we will examine how the resulting ruptures in memory and self-understanding wrought by this German Catastrophe were buried, manipulated, and confronted over the course of the Cold War and to the present day.
