« back to classes page
This course will offer learners the opportunity to explore a broad overview of Germany’s turbulent political history from 1918 to 1945. This offering is part one of a two part series beginning with the origins of totalitarianism in Europe and Germany, the trauma of German military defeat and economic ruin from the aftermath of World War I. Also discussed is the rise of Adolph Hitler and the political context of the early Nazi party, which includes the Beerhall Putsch and its aftermath as well as the cracks in the Weimar Republic. Finally, an investigation into the breakdown of Germany’s Parliamentary democracy and the consolidation of power will be discussed. Part II of this series will be offered later in the semester, which will include topics such as life in Nazi Germany, Hitler’s foreign policy, the invasion of Poland, Bliztkrieg: the expansion of Nazi power, a new racial order in Europe, and the defeat of Nazi Germany.
