By considering the various methods used by the Nazis to both gain and maintain control, students will gain a deeper appreciation of the effect of Nazism on life in Germany, particularly the impact on cultural expression, religion, workers, youth, women, and other minorities.
In addition to an in-depth seminar, students will hear the recollections of a Holocaust survivor and closely examine a range of artefacts in the Museum’s display. This program is designed to both enhance student content knowledge, historical understanding and source analysis skills while providing students with a deeper comprehension of the dangers of eliminating individual freedoms and the threat that dictatorships can pose to peace and security.
