OxHMD23 - Representations of the Holocaust in Film
As the Holocaust recedes in living memory, its representation in television and film only increases. From courtroom dramas like Denial (2016) and action films such as Defiance (2008) and Operation Finale (2018), to comedies like JoJo Rabbit (2019) and more serious treatments such as Schindler’s List (1993) and Son of Saul (2015), films about the Holocaust continue to capture the public imagination. This panel will discuss Holocaust cinema as the canon continues to diversify in genre-bending, post-memorial ways.
