HIS 422 Holocaust in Film



This course will examine film representations of the Holocaust and the Third Reich, including documentaries, independent films, television programs, and award winning Hollywood and foreign films. This course will assist students in developing the skills necessary to read film and the moving image as a genre of historical interpretation. Students will be asked to discuss the role (and appropriateness) of film for conveying the Holocaust experience to contemporary audiences. Students will combine a reading of film with supporting historiographical and primary source materials to develop their analyses of the films. Film content may be revised to reflect new releases or availability.
