I will put the 3 powerpoints of my presentations on the presentations
page of my web site:
(Since I am planning to reorganize my site soon, I don't want to give
a more precise URL.)
- The homepage for my Hist 33D course, "Interdisciplinary
Perspectives on the Holocaust," has relevant material as well (lecture
14 has the two models I showed, plus one more). Note also the student
"web projects" section. [Now at: http://www.history.ucsb.edu/faculty/marcuse/classes/33d/]
- I also have a "Holocaust Oral History Project," designed by
students to provide resources for people who want to do oral history,
and to publish relevant student projects. The organization isn't optimal.
the "how to" and "research
papers" sections are the most useful, I think: http://www.history.ucsb.edu/projects/holocaust/.
