CJUS-X 395, The Law of War
This companion course to CJUS-P 493 will focus on specific World War II events and discuss the application of the law of armed conflict and legal and just war moral principles to key historic incidents. Focusing on the justice of war, we will discuss key topics such as the infringement of Czechoslovakia’s territorial integrity and political sovereignty, their occupation by Nazi Germany, the assassination attempt of the Butcher of Prague (Reinhard Heydrich) by the Czechoslovakian Special Forces, and Adolf Hitler’s reprisals. The course will have a lecture by faculty from Charles University in Prague; tours of the Military History Museum, the town of Lidice, and Olšany Cemetery; and discussions with officers of the Slovakian 5th Special Forces Regiment to provide an in-depth discussion of the assassination attempt and of the men who braved the mission.
