PCS 195-01 - Introductory Special Topic: Ireland as Holocaust Sanctuary

1 credits (Fall)
This course will examine Ireland as a  place of refuge for Jewish people fleeing the Holocaust. Even though Ireland remained a difficult destination for people fleeing Nazi occupied Europe, the testimony of survivors who arrived to the Irish free state in the 30s and 40s provides compelling evidence of Irish attitudes at that time. Students will be be offered a view into the complex historical and social context under conditions of neutrality in the independent Irish state.

Prerequisite: None.
Note: Dates: September 14 to September 30. Short course deadlines apply
