Wednesday 6 May
4 – 5.30pm
Explore the complex and tragic relationship between the rise of the Nazi party and Hitler in Germany, and the collapse of democracy. By considering the threat that dictatorships pose to peace and security, students will better appreciate the destruction of two thousand years of European Jewish life.
Complementing this experience, students will hear first-hand survivor testimony in order to understand the human effect of these turbulent years.
Finally, through a close examination of artefacts, images and Holocaust survivor testimony, students will explore key aspects of this period such as the initial consolidation of Nazi power, the implementation of the Nuremberg Laws, the breakdown of democratic structures, the role of propaganda and the experience of Kristallnacht.
This 90 minute interactive webinar is limited to groups of 20 people and goes in depth to consider one aspect of the HSC core.
