It doesn’t matter how many pages as long you answer All the questions (Minimum two pages)

Please address each of the sub-points in this four-step essay question.

1. What are Daniel Goldhagen’s logical criteria for an adequate explanation of the German perpetrators’ conduct in the Holocaust? Why does Goldhagen reject explanations of the perpetrators’ conduct (including Browning’s) that rely upon situationally specific factors? Why is Goldhagen skeptical of attempts to apply the experimental findings of social psychology to explain the German perpetrators’ conduct?

2. In his afterward to Ordinary Men, Christopher Browning (a) critiques Daniel Goldhagen’s account of German anti-Semitism, (b) insists that comparable Nazi killings took place against non-Jewish victims, (c) criticizes Goldhagen’s use of evidence from the Jozefow massacre, and (d) rejects a monocausal account of the perpetrators’ motivation. Review the reasoning and evidence that Browning uses to make these objections.

3. Did Browning in your view appreciate Goldhagen’s reasoning? How did (or how might have) Goldhagen come back to overturn each of these four objections in turn?

4. Adopt your own perspective to present your own overall assessment of the relative merits of each author’s approach in explaining the German perpetrators’ conduct. You may want to consider the relative range of facts each is able to cover, the relative simplicity of the competing explanations, the factual adequacy of each, the depth of detail the competing explanations cover, and other criteria of adequacy. What in your view are the critical pieces of evidence that tip the scales in favor of one author?
