In a rapidly modernizing world, where antisemitism is on the rise, and the generation of Holocaust survivors passing away, it is more important than ever to record and remember the Holocaust. This course will focus on teaching about visual representations of the Holocaust, their meanings, and their importance. Due to the widely varied nature of Holocaust representation and memorialization, the course will teach and interpret across genres and mediums. Class members will learn to utilize a wide variety of materials, including art, photography, film, poetry, literature, museums, and memorials.
