JCTC2605 - From Emancipation to the Holocaust

Semester 1, 2011  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Konrad Kwiet


This unit is designed to introduce students to the turbulent history of European Jewry, 1750 to 1933. Against the background of far-reaching transformation in almost every aspect of society and culture, the Jew's entry into the modern world will be examined. At the centre stands the process of acculturation, integration, assimilation and Zionism, as well as the responses by non-Jewish society, especially the rise of modern antisemitism.
