H5414: Ultimate Dictator Showdown: Hitler vs. Stalin in Splash! 2011 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2011)
Hitler and Stalin were both powerful and honestly, crazy dictators. The impacts they had on their respective societies and on the world were so crucial, that people still cringe at the mention of "The Holocaust" or "gulag". So who were Hitler and Stalin? Where did they come from? What did they do? And if they were both so powerful, how were they similar? Furthermore, we will look into PROPAGANDA (super important!!), and maybe even make some of our own ;) This class intends to give students an understanding of the characters and policies/actions of these dictators, and then to compare them to understand what makes a strong dictator. And of course, this is supposed to be super fun for history geeks- I intend for us to rant incessantly about ridiculous these dictators were, etc. =D
