In this course we will view and discuss films that have attempted, through a variety of approaches and techniques, to grapple with the Holocaust and related issues of genocide. We will begin with films made in the immediate postwar period and end with contemporary films. We will examine what these films can teach us about the issues they address as well as how they reflect the time and place of their creation.
