Holocaust Memory in the Present: Berlin and Poland

What does it mean to confront the history and memory of the Holocaust at the actual sites of its occurrence? How does the Holocaust affect the post-war cultural life of Germany and Poland? This Spring-into-Summer course, led by Professor Jared Stark, explores the complex evolution of Holocaust memory in Berlin, Germany, and in various cities and towns in Poland, featuring interactive, guided study of major memorial sites. These will include provocative museums, such as the Berlin Jewish Museum Berlin designed by Daniel Liebeskind (currently master architect for Ground Zero in New York City) and the recent Schindler Factory Museum; hidden traces of former Jewish ghettos; and the moving, unsettling experience of visiting former death camps such as Auschwitz and Treblinka. Throughout the trip, we will have the opportunity to meet local experts and scholars and to appreciate the rich and vibrant urban life of modern Germany (Berlin) and Poland (Warsaw, Lublin, and Krakow).
