COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The history of the peoples of East Central Europe (Poles, Czechs, Hungarians, and Slovaks) from the end of the First World War in 1918 to the Present. Through lectures, readings, and films, we will follow these peoples as they rebuild their countries after World War I, succumb to the dangers of fascism and Nazism, endure the Second World War, are absorbed into Soviet Russia’s empire, resist and ultimately overthrow Communist rule, and face the challenges of integration into the European Union. No background is needed, though a basic familiarity with modern European history is helpful.
