Religious Studies / Philosophy
Project title: Religion in the Shadow of the Shoah: Exploring the Social Dimensions of Religion
Mentor: Jeffrey Pugh
This semester I was mainly focused on continuing my readings and making the most of my time in Berlin. I read a couple books on my own and read many articles and book excerpts as part of my class, “The Totalitarian Experience and the Human Condition”. This class was extremely helpful to me because I was able to read about authoritarianism from many different perspectives and read major theorists in the field of Holocaust Studies. I wrote on everything that I read, helping me with my literature review and theory sections of my project. In March, I applied for an internship at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. and in April was informed that I was offered an internship in their department on Ethics, Religion, and the Holocaust. I also learned a lot of German this semester and was able to visit many historical sites and museums in and around Berlin to add to my understanding of the Holocaust from a German perspective.
