Is there a right and wrong way to retell the story of the Holocaust?

Thursday, November 8, 2018 • 7:45pm

In 1955, renowned French filmmaker Alain Resnais produced Night and Fog, depicting the Nazis’ systematic destruction of people. Forty years later, Steven Spielberg produced Survivors of the Holocaust. Both documentaries used the same archival visual material to present distinctly different presentations.  We will review these two films and talk about whether there is a right or wrong way to teach the Holocaust.
