TOP REVIEWS FROM THE HOLOCAUST: THE DESTRUCTION OF EUROPEAN JEWRY
Lots of work, only 3 short papers, but lots of reading. Very interesting and enjoyable. Really went into depth with lots of history and literature discussed. Informative lectures.
I want to say how much I especially enjoyed Dr Kenez and his very clear and concise lectures on the historical aspects of the subject matter. Thank you very much. Richard Kilgore
The presentations raise vital questions , dis-aggregates historical experience and has generated interest in me to study the issues further . Many thanks to the Professors.
Took this course for job purposes. It is great for everyone, although I believe that people with some background in comparative literature will benefit from it the most,
Dark and disturbing though the course material is, this course is an absolute must for all who are interested in the Shoah and the depths of mans' inhumanity.
This was very interesting, I had to keep listening, it made it so personal. (I had relatives who perished in Minsk) Excellent course and fascinating tutors.
Absolutely adored this class and the instructors!! So much valuable information and first-hand experience, delightfully delivered in these special lectures.
This was an excellent historical account of the Holocaust. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and personal accounts of this event.
Fascinating historical, sociological, cultural, and literary journey through the Holocaust and the years preceding and following.
I found this course extremely informative. I would recommend it to anyone interested in a detailed history on the Holocaust.
I love the course, love the professors. Great course! Thank you!
