Lessons from the Holocaust

Tavaana's Lessons from the Holocaust course is designed to promote understanding of the Holocaust and, by extension, the threat of persecution and genocide more broadly. The course will introduce participants to the history of ideological violence, racism, persecution and genocide.  Students will examine the crimes against humanity perpetrated by Nazi Germany. As opposed to a purely historical approach, students examine these issues using a political philosophy framework. In response to the systemic denial of the Holocaust and anti-Semitism, especially in Iran, the largely ignored history of Jews in Iran, and the ongoing persecution of the Baha’is, this course will explore the roots and causes of the Holocaust and the modern history of persecution and genocides globally.
