The course provides an overview of some of the most important aspects of the history of the Third Reich, covering political, cultural, social and military history. The module will provide insights into one of the darkest, most disturbing and most formative eras of European history. The module aims to discuss different interpretations of how the Third Reich came into being, the reasons for its ‘success’ and eventual failure. Particular attention will be paid to racial theories, the Holocaust and the attempted ethnic unweaving of Europe during World War II.
