Based on an event held at the Imperial War Museum in London, this book is a unique blend of voices and perspectives, including archivists, curators, filmmakers, scholars, and Holocaust survivors. Tracing the Holocaust, each section of the book is dedicated to a different category of the moving image: Film as Witness; Propaganda; Documentary in Film and Television; Feature Films; Legacy and other Genocides. Each section examines specific films in the broad context of the history of the Holocaust and how they may have contributed to a wider awareness and understanding of the cataclysm since the war.Accessible, engaging and stimulating, this book is an excellent introduction to the subject, discussing such key titles as "The Eternal Jew" (1940) and "Night and Fog" (1956) and such subject sas the use of film and video in war crimes trials. But the book will also encourage the reader to move beyond "Schindler's List" (1993) and "Life is Beautiful" (1997) to new classics of the genre, such as Andrej Munk's "Passenger" (1963) and Alfred Radok's "The Long Journey" (1949).
