Description

This decolonial Dutch Studies course examines the Holocaust and World War II in The Netherlands and beyond through the careful analysis of the Diary of Anne Frank and its legacy. With a special emphasis on increasing your understanding of antisemitism and European colonial racism, the course takes the Diary, its film, stage and television adaptations, and other Holocaust accounts as the basis for critical discussions. Topics include Jewish migration and Jewish life in Amsterdam, bystanding, resistance and rescue, witnessing, Holocaust denial, and controversial issues such as the fictionalization of Anne Frank and alleged Holocaust exploitation. Dutch colonial thought is at the center of the course’s examinations. You will develop your daily discussion writings/recordings (DWs) into a midterm paper and draw from them for your culminating mini-essays exam at the end of the term. Although the course adopts various textual examples from Dutch (including the Diary), all literature is read in English and the course is conducted in English.
