Item description for Holocaust and the Moving Image- Representations in Film and Television Since 1933 by Toby Haggith & Joanna Newman...
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, and Holocaust survivors. Tracing the Holocaust, each section of the book is dedicated to a different category of the moving image: film as witness; film as propaganda; documentary in film and television; and feature films. Each section examines specific films in the broad context of the history of the Holocaust and how they have contributed to a wider understanding of the tragedy.
Accesible and stimulating, this book is an excellent introduction to the subject, discussing such titles as The Eternal Jew (1940) and Night and Fog (1956) and such subjects as the use of film and video in war crimes trials. The book also encourages the reader to move beyond Schindler's List (1993) and Life is Beautiful (1997) to other classics of the genre.
