Introducing Holocaust Studies for Indian Higher Education

The research is targeted towards writing a guidebook on why and how Indian higher education needs to approach the study of the Holocaust, its unique position in human history and the responses from international justice. Alongside this, the book will offer comparative perspectives in genocide education and underscore the need to learn lessons from past injustices of the world (including India’s own episodes of massviolence). The book will deal effectively with the learning of Holocaust history, processes involved in de-humanization of the victims and key events for an Indian (undergraduate and graduate) classroom situation. The project is in partnership with the United States Holocaust Museum, and led by JCIS Convener and Faculty coordinator, Professor Rohee Dasgupta.
