HIS 4935: Senior Seminar: Hitler and Stalin / Dr. Kollander

During World War II, Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin would begin as allies and then end up as enemies during the course of the war. Both men would rise to power in their respected nations, and rule as tyrants and murderers. They shared a common ground in that they held racial hatred of Jews and other ethnic groups. Hitler and Stalin ruled with brute force and controlled the media, the police, and government bodies, demanding total power.  Beyond their similar ruling habits, they held similar psychological characteristics, as they both were narcissistic and sociopathic personalities. 

 The purpose of this guide is to provide, you the researcher, with the ability to do research in the subject area of Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin. You will have the ability to search the library catalog, and access our databases and journals all from within this course guide. This guide will also provide you with a list of Primary Source Websites dealing with Hitler and Stalin, along with important regarding library services and departments that may prove useful to you while you are doing research.
