- Midterm evaluation results
Midterm evaluations (link to form)
- polar opinions on Riefenstahl
- Wannsee Conf & battalion 101: overkill
- My response: not facts or information, but PERSPECTIVES
- crucial to see different interpretations, different meanings, different
- Final exam: you can choose oral or take-home (doesn't matter to me)
- Anxiety regarding group projects
- difficulty getting together (next time: Tue eve)
- more guidance:
- make it modular: blocks of text + annotated links
- submit word processor version (who uses what?)
- File - Save As: "rtf" format
Examples of German Resistance (refer to textbook for more details)
- Students: White Rose in Munich
- July 1942 - Feb. 1943 (Stalingrad)

- Rosenstrasse, Berlin: Feb. 1943: Intermarried couples reversed deportation
- Individuals: Oskar Schindler; people who hid Jews

Resistance and EIEIO
- Economic motivations?
careers, money for hiding people
- International situation?
timing of actions: when gov't weak
- Elite participation?
were leaders involved?
what did they know (or not know?)
- Opposition of individuals
element of choice, access to means
