Title: Germany and the Rise of Nazism
Course Section Number: HIS-330-01
Department: History
Description: This course begins by asking if Germany took a "special path" in Western Europe, one that encouraged fascism to grow in 20th century Germany. Course readings address the rise of fascism as it grew in the 1930s and how the state encouraged participation. Students will read about the activities of the Hitler Youth; the average guy in the Wehrmacht; women's associations under Nazism; the "racial state"; coercion in Nazi Germany; police activities under German law; and the use of methamphetamine to "encourage' Germans to fight during WWII. The course culminates in independent research to study the disparate theories about the rise of Nazism during the 20th century.
