Moving Pictures: Films About the Holocaust presented by Dr. Andre Krauss

Dr. Krauss has prepared this riveting extended and comprehensive two- hour lecture which will address many discussions and controversies about Holocaust filmography, including the controversial topic:  Is comedy an appropriate genre for narrating the Holocaust?

Based upon his in-depth analysis, Dr. Krauss will show film clips from dozens of documentaries and feature films and will review the different genres and techniques used by film makers throughout the years intended, and perhaps unintentionally, to report, explain, and often manipulate the subject of the Holocaust.

Dr.  Krauss will discuss the fact that not only did various individual personalities and style preferences of movie directors such as Claude Lanzmann and Steven Spielberg have their imprint on Holocaust cinematography, but political contingencies as well often governed the production and distribution of movies about the Holocaust.

For this unique presentation, film clips have been edited in such a manner so that interviews with Holocaust survivors and their children are juxtaposed with interviews with Holocaust perpetrators and their children, all in an effort to illustrate the effects of the Holocaust and its historical legacy.
