Berlin and Beyond: Dictatorship and Resistance in the 20th Century

The short twentieth century (1918-1989) in Central Europe has been a century of war, dictatorship, devastation, and revolution. This spring course includes ten days of European travel and will allow you to develop a new understanding of this period through personal encounters with two cities: Berlin and Arzberg. You will study the history, read the literature, analyze the culture, and experience life in a metropolis and small formerly West German city on the border between East and West.
