It is an eye-opening and humbling course. I appreciate how the content was presented through an engaging narrative. It led me to think more deeply about the Holocaust and humanity, for that matter.

Very informative and it truly answer all my questions about the world war 2. Learning about the Holocaust, history's worst period gives me butterflies in my stomach. I believe I'm tough enough to continue studying this subject, but I couldn't control my emotions in every chapter, and I thought it triggered my despair. THE BADGE OF SHAME, THE NAZI GHETTOS, CONCENTRATION CAMPS, AND ISOLATION make me feel very emotional .

Excellent and in depth introduction to the Holocaust, explaining much of the background, history, and events of the first part of WWII for European Jews and the years just prior to it. If you have ever asked yourself "How could this horrific event have happened? What were people doing that it wasn't stopped?" then this course is for you. This is a course I think everyone should take so that we truly learn from history.

This is a great course to take to get a small look into the bigger picture of the Holocaust. I like very much what I study here and ready to learn more along with American History. Anyone that is looking to study what had happened in WW2 between 1938 to 1945 this is a start. Videos like this one also help to better understand the question of WHY it started https://youtu.be/zUW9RsZwgAE
Thank You very much

I give this course the highest rating because it was presented in an easy to understand format, included great resources and offered new ways of researching certain materials that can be used to identify with the victims of the Holocaust directly such as their art and their diaries. Photos are also a very important aspect of the truth of what actually went on during the Holocaust, not just public official views.

I found this to be a fascinating course and definitely will help you understand the factors that led to the Holocaust. For me, it was more about trying to understand how we - as humanity - could enable such a thing to happen. While it does not answer that question specifically, it does allow for you to understand the conditions which lead up to it and how it impacts the question of Jewish Identity today.

This course is clearly taught by professors that are complete experts in their field. It allows you to think critically about the Jewish experience during WW2 and facilitates discussions with discussion questions available for each topic. Definitely recommend taking if you want to learn more about what fueled Nazi hate and how Europe reacted to this genocide. Will be moving on to part II shortly!

I finished this course so fast... I just wanted to continue learning more and more. I had heard so much about the Holocaust, but I was never told nor learned the context, the reasons, the actual events. I've discovered and understood so much thanks to this course. Thank you so much to everyone who worked on this MOOC. Looking forward to the second part and other courses from this university!

A very good course to understand Nazi Germany, Jews lives under Hitler rule and the outlook of the Europian world towards the Jews. I absolutely loved the professor's teaching style, the course content was good and concise and very informative. Reading session further helped me in understanding the whole scenario better, quizzes between the lessons helped me in retaining most of the lesson.

This is the first online course I took and I absolutely love it! I learned a lot of new information and ideas about a topic which I am interested in but am not so familiar with. Lessons are well-paced, discussion prompts encourage you to think about specific topics, and supplementary materials provide additional information and insights on the lessons. Good thing this course has a Part II!

Muchas gracias por darme la oportunidad de tan fabuloso curso. En verdad aprendí nuevas cosas. Espero que pronto puedan abrir el curso con subtitulos en español. Será muy reconfortante para los hispanoparlantes que no dominamos muy bien el inglés. Felicidades!!!! Ah, y abran más cursos sobre la cultura judía, en verdad es muy interesante. Quizá podría haber un curso para aprender algo de

Excellent, content, delivery and range of resources, both primary and secondary. I was thoroughly satisfied with it and answered many questions which I had previously thought of but did not know if they were relevant. This is a wonderful tool for persons with not just an interest in History in general but also into the mindsets of persons in countries of occupied Europe at this time.

I learned a lot from this course, far beyond the basic Holocaust and Anna Frank studies I had in public school. For anyone interested in WWII history in Germany or in the Holocaust in general, this is a great course. I highly recommend it for even those who aren't specifically interested, just for the knowledge of these crimes against humanity and how they were allowed to happen.

This is a course worth to be taken by each inhabitant of the core nations of the African Great Lakes Region (AGLR), at least each scholar and sociopolitical leader of the DRC, Rwanda, Burundi and Uganda preventing genocide and other mass atrocities is to be taken seriously there. Making it available in French and training French-speaking local trainers is a real need there.

The course lets you access a wide range of resources that help you build a deeper understanding of the mass murder of European Jews. The questions in between videos (lessons) are helpful in processing and synthesizing socio-political events and ideologies that led to the holocaust. Two weeks into the lesson and I have never been bored - it is interesting and engaging.

A very informative course, presented in such a manner that all and everybody will understand the horrors of WW2, and in particular the savage treatment, inflicted by the Nazi's and others, suffered by the Jewish population of Europe. Whilst I was born a Christian I due not practice any form of religion, but I respect all other peoples faith. ~ Steve Winter

This was my first course in Coursera. I took it as a recreation course and it definetely caught me. The proffessor´s explanation is great and the material included is very interesting. The secuence of the course leads you to understand the topic without knowing more than general culture about the holocaust. I definetely recommend it.

It is not easy to prepare and present this part of German History without any emotive stance and without condemnation. But you did it brilliant and it was well prepared. I learned a lot and what is most important for me new perspectives with unknown or partial unknown materials. Thank you very much for being a part of this course.

This course is a must for the beginner as well as seasoned learners. Having a good understanding and knowledge of the WWII and separately concerning the Holocaust it's a well presented representation of understanding what was happening and why. So many questions can be answered. Well done and look forward to Part Two.

Anyone that is interested in learning about the Holocaust needs to take this course. I have taken many university courses on the subject and am currently doing my Master's degree in Holocaust education. I was very impressed with the instruction given by the specialists and the reading materials that they provided.

I liked the Professors. It must be so spending their lives as Israelis and Jews studying the regime that led to the destruction of people like themselves and perhaps some of their own family members. However, their work is so important to bringing as much light and understanding as possible into the horr

the topic itself greatly interested me. But as i began to learn the course, i was actually hooked to it. This course actually cleared a lot of misconceptions about Holocaust And Understanding Nazi Germany, lives under Hitler rule and the outlook of the European world towards the Jews

An exceptional overview of the topic. A variety of scholarly approaches are applied to this most sensitive of topics. The presentation is lucid and engaging. Highly recommended to both those with little knowledge of the Holocaust and those looking to revise or consolidate.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I learned from this short course. I originally was just taking it to refresh my memory on the Holocaust due to my wife's German and Jewish heritage. I came away with a fresh perspective that will stay with me for the rest of my life.

This course was outstanding and was FULL of information that I had never known. Understanding all of the events that led up to the Holocaust helps to make the timing and series of events fall in to place. This course was the best source of information that I have e.
