Project #46874 - EUROPEAN ECON AND history

 

Required Books:

Text: Asa Briggs & Patricia Clavin, Modern Europe, 1789-present

Reader: Michael S. Melancon & John C. Swanson, Modern Europe: Sources and 

Perspectives from History

 

 

This week’s topic is about the concept of responsibility (and appeasement) as it 

relates to international historical events like the Jewish Holocaust and the 

Stalinist purges, and more recent tragedies like the Bosnian and Rwandan 

genocides of the 1990s. 

Read Part 15 (excerpts from Ginzburg, Levi and Wiesel) in your reader and the 

article on Rwanda and Bosnia, the “Geographic Aspects of Genocide.”

Discuss: What is our responsibility as human beings to speak out against and 

take action to prevent genocide?

To think about: How would you compare the Stalinist purges to the Jewish was 

the Holocaust? Knowing what we do about this era in history, how and why do 

we continue to let genocide take place? Are there “guilty men” (i.e. appeasers 

like Chamberlain) who turned a blind eye to events in Bosnia and Rwanda in the 

1990s? What is our responsibility as human beings to act to prevent other such 

atrocities from taking place?

Answer the question by referring specifically to the three documents in your

reader and by using direct quotes from these sources to support the points in 

your initial post. Your follow-up posts to your classmates should include a 

question for them to answer, which furthers the discussion, about historical and 

contemporary examples of genocide.
