The "Holocaust" refers to the systematic state-sponsored persecution and genocide of the Jews of Europe and North Africa along with other groups during World War II by Nazi Germany and the Axis powers. Other victims include religious groups such as Jehovah’s Witnesses, Freemasons and Catholic and Protestant clergy; the mentally and physically disabled; homosexuals; prisoners of war; intelligentsia and political activists; and races that were deemed inferior. More than 11 million people died, which according to death toll estimates include around 6 million Jews and 1.9 million Gentile Poles.
An enormous amount of Holocaust-themed films is available for those who desire to comprehend its dimensions. Some of these films deal directly with the Holocaust period in Europe (1930s to 1945), while others provide images in the form of flashbacks or narration. But one thing common to these films is that they all attempt to describe the physical, mental and emotional struggles of people affected by it. I believe that the most important goal of learning about the Holocaust is to prevent such a tragedy from ever happening again. (Warning: most films about Holocaust might contain images that can be disagreeable to one's sensibilities.)
Can you identify these films?
