The Effects of Historical and Political Education on German Youth Identification

Ruthie studied International Comparative literature and received certificates in Latin American Studies and Ethics during her years at Duke. But her Berlin Project focused on how the history of the GDR (East Germany) was taught in public schools.

Working with her advisors, Dr. Jakob Norberg and Dr. Marci Little, she developed a questionnaire to send to students in 9 different cities. This project ultimately led to her undergraduate senior thesis.
