Stolen Years: Youth under the Nazis in World War IICourse Cancelled

Froma I. Zeitlin

Back to "Fall 2018" courses

COM 362 examines the gendered experiences of childhood and adolescence under the Nazis in World War II as witnessed, remembered, and represented in texts and images through a variety of genres and different nationalities. We include historical studies, diaries, testimonies, memoirs, fiction (semi-autobiographical or otherwise), photos, and film (documentary and feature) of 1st and 2nd generations. While we focus on struggles for survival and their traumatic aftereffects among Jewish youth, who were specific targets of genocidal policy, not just unintended victims, we will also attend to the experiences of others in the occupied countries.
