“Complicity” means being part of something (either directly or indirectly). Based on both your knowledge of modern world history and your study of World War I and World War II, I’d like you to consider this issue of complicity and collaboration and to make an argument regarding how we should approach people in world history who might not have led particular actions but nonetheless went along with actions that today we might condemn. Using the World Wars as a starting point, how should we approach individual and/collective responsibility in world history? If you choose you can also link this to other events we’ve studied to compare or contrast. [I appreciate that this might be a difficult topic to think and write about so, if you prefer, you can cover a slightly less intense topic: Was World War II continuation of World War I and a new “30 Year War?” Why or why not?
