You do not need to o ANY of the readings of you go to lecture. I have read absolutely nothing and got a 97 on the midterm and the final should be equally easy. Just divide up the questions, cram, and you are like the ticket from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Professor Friedlander is an amazing professor. His lectures were always interesting and engaging. Never a dull moment! The class is on the Third Reich and the Jews, basically all about World War II and the Holocaust. The class consists of a mid-term and a final, he gives you study questions before hand. However, it is not easy. You need to attend ALL the lectures and do all the readings, this class is very interesting and you shouldn't cheat yourself about learning about this fascinating topic. He is a wonderful man, very approachable. I highly recommend taking this class.

Professor Friedlander is an outstanding lecturer. I genuinely enjoyed going to class and hearing him lecture. He is by far the most interesting person in the history department and I learned very valuable information from him. Too good to be true right?--right! He is amazing but his READERS! OH MY GOODNESS. steer clear from the one with the glasses. When you go discuss your paper with her she talks to you in a condescending manner. HELLO! im coming to you for help, get off your high horse and stop talking down to me! and not only that even if you have all the information and your clearly answering the question its not "good enough"... take him and pray he hired OTHER readers.

Overall no complaints. His lectures are for the most part organized (he clearly states each topic) and he is incredibly knowledgeable. The only slight problem is his very thick accent (I am not criticizing him though). Zoning out was quite easy. I had to really concentrate on what he was saying or else I'd lose him. Unfortunately you can't get away with not doing the reading because the notes are really not enough to answer his essays. The midterm is optional but if you take it it's 30% of the grade. The final is then worth either 70 or 100%. He gives out study topics before the final and has a review session, which were really helpful. He's pretty flexible about grading too. If you bombed on the midterm but improve a lot on the final he'll disregard the midterm grade. I did some of the reading, went to lectures, studied the topics and came out with a B+, fine with me.
