Contemporary Response to the Holocaust (JCTC6915)


The Holocaust, unprecedented in history, has proved to be an ongoing story, and not one that ended in 1945. The magnitude of events during the Holocaust has created enormous debate but despite this it still eludes full comprehension. Issues such as the failure to deal with Nazi war criminals, Holocaust denial, and the question of how to effectively memorialize the Holocaust continue to challenge people today. This unit seeks to analyse a wide range of contemporary responses to the Holocaust.
