Posted by Kimberly McCoy-Blauser on June 6, 2022 at 2:31 PM

Do you want to learn more about the turbulent dictatorship in Nazi Germany? Sign up for this one week institute being offered during the upcoming Summer Session B starting July 11.

Since the fall of Nazi Germany, historians have uncovered an enormous amount of information and have advanced many explanations for the rise of the Nazi dictatorship and for its hold over German society and development of radical racist and genocidal policies.

In this class we will survey what historians have learned focusing in particular on the relationship between state and society. At one time, images of Nazi Germany presented it as an all-powerful dictatorship that simply crushed society and forced conformity. Nazi Germany certainly was a dictatorship, but the class will investigate the very wide range of complex responses by Germans which ranged from active participation all the way to resistance.
