What Can We Learn from Films About the Holocaust?
Hosted By: Moment Magazine
At a time when antisemitism is on the rise and the Holocaust is thrown around as a comparison to many of today’s political and social issues, what can movies about the Holocaust teach us?
Join Holocaust scholar and film producer Michael Berenbaum for a conversation with Michael Berlin, screenwriter and founder of the Jewish Film Festival of Orange County, CA, about the impact of the Holocaust on film and how film plays an important role in transmitting knowledge about the Holocaust to new generations. The conversation will commence with the 1940 Academy Award nominated film, The Great Dictator, starring Charlie Chaplin and progress through the years to the 2015 Academy Award-winning Hungarian film Son of Saul.
This program is hosted by Moment Magazine with the support of the Joyce and Irving Goldman Family Foundation.
