The Second World War was unlike any war before or since, and nowhere was its destructive energy felt more forcefully than in Eastern Europe under Nazi and Soviet occupation. Of the seventy million lives that the war claimed worldwide, nearly half were lost in Eastern Europe, an area roughly equivalent in size to the U.S. Midwest. This online course will make use of primary sources, wartime documents, scholarly works, memoirs and diaries, visual arts, literature, and film to examine the mechanics and rhythms of life and survival, resistance and collaboration, commemoration and loss on the Eastern Front.
