The Demolition of Man

In this you will learn about the events that led up to the Holocaust. We will look at Primo Levi's account of being a prisoner at Auschwitz, and then consider different interpretations of the events that led to the Holocaust. We will look at historians who have contextualized it within the fighting of the Second World War, and historians who have contextualized it with Nazi control of Germany.
