From Spain to Russia and Flanders to Greece, hundreds of thousands of ordinary people of conscience fought fascism across Europe in the years leading up to World War II. Focusing on their experiences, this eight-session course will examine a turbulent time in world history and the determination of everyday people to build a more just world. In particular, the course will address the Jewish partisans who fought genocide; camp inmates who rose against their persecutors; women who defied the status quo; and the Americans who fought in the Spanish Civil war. Throughout, we will discuss how the memory of this resistance continues to influence our lives today.
Eight sessions. E - $265, L - $291.50
