HIS 270 Modern German History 4cr

This course covers German history from the creation of the modern German state in 1871 to the present. The course focuses broadly on the so-called Sonderweg or "different path" of German history while examining such topics as the German state under Bismarck, Weimar culture, the role of ordinary Germans in the Holocaust, East Germany and the state security policy, and life in re-unified Germany. Classic German films of the last 80 years will be used to enhance students' understanding of German culture throughout this period.
