Photographing the Holocaust

University of Nottingham, available now

This course will explore how photos can offer new insights into the history of the Holocaust and what problems we face when relying on the ‘perpetrator gaze’. It also explores the propaganda photography used by the Nazis. Ambassadors can also expect to learn more about the background behind well-known photographs from the Holocaust. This course could be incredibly interesting for Ambassadors due to the contemporary resonance photography of the Holocaust has with us today, as well as the complex questions around the danger of relying on photos for ‘shock factor’ over education.
