RTS 2900 - Holocaust: Theology, Reality and Aftermath

Credits: 4
The course will identify the components of the Holocaust as well as those of any genocide paying particular attention to the historical development of antisemitism, especially within the Christian and Western contexts. Special attention will be given (as per the directive of the Holy See in implementing “We Remember”) to the examination of Christian and Western actions and attitudes during the Holocaust to try to determine how cognitive, moral and faith development operated when propaganda attempted to manipulate them for evil. Lastly, it will examine how we remember the lives of those lost and the lessons of the event. Three hours a week.
