REL 341 - Theological Responses to the Shoah

3 credits
Prerequisite(s): REL 123 , REL 110RS  REL 210RS  or REL 223 
How does one respond to the Shoah, i.e., the catastrophic systematic extermination of millions of Jews by the Nazi regime? The inhumanity with which the Jews were massacred is beyond the capacity of words to convey. The magnitude of this genocide raises complex questions, as well as moral and religious reflection. The fact that the Shoah took place in Europe, that is, in countries of longstanding Christian civilization, also raises questions about the relation between Nazi persecution and the attitudes down the centuries of Christians toward the Jews.
