French Collaboration in the Holocaust: 
The Story in Film and Fiction

With Dr. Daniel Schwarz
Wednesday, February 22 at 7:30 PM

Films and fiction, in the form of narratives about the Holocaust, have helped overcome the dominant and incorrect history of the 1940-1944 Occupation years. Schwarz will explore the roles of both documentary and imaginative films in exposing the active collaboration of the Vichy government with the Nazis in the deportation and murder of the Jews living in France. He will address important existential and ethical issues that involve the persecution of Jews and the politics of memory, namely how this genocide could happen in France, why it was suppressed and repressed, and what cultural events changed the dominant narrative and corrected historical amnesia.

Live in-person at TBE and via Zoom
