Holocaust & Anti-Semitism

Films in this category offer unique perspectives on an all-too familiar topic, intertwining the themes of German/Jewish relations, anti-Nazi resistance and the Holocaust. As soon as WWII ended, (East) German directors began addressing the horrific legacy of the Nazis in a wide range of films produced between 1946 and 1988. In contrast to what were broadly included in the definition of antifascist films in the GDR (see above), this theme focuses more narrowly on those films in which there is a strong depiction of the racially motivated crimes of the Nazis against Jews, Roma and Sinti, among others.
