GER 339 - The Shoah in Film: Cinematic Treatments of Holocaust Trauma and Memory

Course Units: 1
(Also MLT 339   ) (Not Offered this Academic Year) The course examines cinematic representations of the Holocaust in the films of German, German-Jewish, and other European filmmakers. Comparing and contrasting a variety of film genres and cinematic techniques, we explore fundamental questions about the relationships between art and history, representation and experience and memory and responsibility. By considering theoretical and historical readings as well, we situate the films within significant intellectual and historical contexts. Prerequisite(s): GER 201   or permission of the instructor.
