Defying fictionalization, the Shoah “builds a border around itself,” Claude Lanzmann said. Is he right?
Too many films set in the Holocaust permit the audience to feel morally superior. Wouldn’t it be better to tell a story about current anti-Semitism?
Technology has robbed us of our ability to empathize. It may take a vision of a death camp to reignite it.
The very act of converting the Shoah into a story on film is a violation of its meaning, its force, and its evil.
