GENOCIDE and MASS MURDER: Where History & Psychology Meet
Have you ever wondered why history seems to repeat itself? Have you ever wondered how groups of people can ruthlessly slaughter, seemingly without remorse, other groups of people by the hundreds of thousands and, occasionally, even by the millions? This learning community will attempt to answer these questions by focusing on the events of WWII and the Holocaust, and by examining the psychological factors that dominated the behavior of the perpetrators, victims, and bystanders. By the completion of the semester, students will have a firm grasp of the events of WWII and the Holocaust, as well as a better understanding of how aspects of human nature allowed these events to unfold such as the did and continue to allow similar events to occur.
Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
