Explore a series of thematically-related films. We'll engage in lively discussions as we analyze the films and our responses to them, while developing a sense of each film's creation, impact, and place in history.
Despite the still-active myth of Jewish passivity during the Holocaust, Jewish people resisted the Nazis in every way possible, violently and nonviolently, in the ghettos, forests, concentration camps, death camps, and all countries occupied by the Germans. We will watch and discuss five films that deal with this resistance: The Pianist, Defiance, The Grey Zone, Korczak, and Defiant Requiem.
