Teaching Assistant History 201:
The Historian’s Craft
Civilians and War on WWII’s Eastern Front
This class introduces students to the rewarding work of historians through an in-depth investigation into the Eastern Front during World War II. The class explores three key questions that historians continue to debate: How did the Nazis carry out the Holocaust in Eastern Europe? To what extent did local people collaborate? And can we conceive of German victimhood? Finally, the course discusses questions of memory and historical judgment. How can historians analyze the ways in which various people, both collectively and individually, have remembered and memorialized the violent experiences of war through postwar trials, oral testimonies, monuments, and museums? The topic of the Eastern Front is a lens through which to debate issues of collaboration, resistance, memory, trauma, and historical empathy, as well as wider questions about how history can help to make sense of the world in which we live.
