Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
This course will provide a high-level overview of World War II in Europe with specific emphasis on Germany's role in the war, and their actions that lead to the Holocaust and the D-Day Invasion of Europe by the Allies. The focus will narrow to the hunt for Nazi War criminals, specifically Adolph Eichmann by the Nazi Hunters such as Simon Wiesenthal. 
I wrote a history book about a Japanese American church congregration in the Los Angeles area and interviewed families who had been forcibly removed during World War II. Though it's not as difficult a subject as the Holocaust, there were some similarities, such as the loss of civil and human rights, and the physical camps themselves. 

In addition to this experience, I have taught college history for four years, and I have dealt with a number of controversial or difficult topics in this context. I will exercise discretion in presenting difficult or traumatic events in history. 
No preparation is required, and there is no homework, but reading the book, Nazi Hunters, would be a great foundation for this class, and would also enable the student to add discussion or bring specific questions to class. I provide a "To learn more" slide in the classroom for students to gain an understanding of the topic.

We have a Kahoot quiz aimed at increasing retention of the material, but no grade will be given or assignments collected. 
55 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
This is terribly upsetting subject that will not be right for every learner. We will discuss Hitler's Final Solution, Concentration Camps, and mass death of Jews. This will be handled as sensitively as is possible, but parents please be warned that the content is difficult. As far as images go, there are supplemental sources that show clips of concentration camp victims (History.com, Biography.com, etc), but we won't plan to look at disturbing images much of the time in class. 

Something like 75 percent of American students don't know this information or doubt the veracity of the facts, so it is vital that this subject be taught, but it is not right for everyone, depending their sensitivities. 
The main content for the class and the outline will come from The Nazi Hunters book, but I also use History.com, Biography.com, PBS, Smithsonian, and and other reputable sources for video clips to enhance the learning experience.
