About this Lecture

Lecture

In this module, we look at the first phase of Nazi persecution in the period 1933 to 1937. In particular, we will focus on: (i) the Nazi views on race, i.e. who was persecuted? And why? (ii) how did the persecution of the Jews develop into a programme of organised mass murder?; (iii) the first stage of persecution from 1933 to 1935, including the boycott of Jewish shops in 1933, the legalisation of discrimination (including the Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service) and the crackdown on hereditary illness (including the Law for the Prevention of Genetically Diseased Offspring); (iv) the second stage of persecution, including the Nuremberg Laws of 1935.

Course

In this course, Professor Mary Fulbrook (UCL) examines Nazi Persecution and the Holocaust from 1933 to 1945. In the first module, we look at some of the key historical debates that historians have tackled in relation to Nazi persecution and the Holocaust. After this, we look at the first phase of Nazi persecution from 1933 to 1937. From then, we look at the second phase of Nazi persecution in the period 1938 to 1941. The penultimate module, looks at the third and final phase of Nazi persecution in the period 1942 to 1945. The final module, looks at the impact of Nazi persecution in the years after the war.
