Finally, a must-read book about Holocaust films.

How are we to understand 75 years of Holocaust film production? How has cinematic (and world) history been altered by the advent of Holocaust films? Can we criticize this emotional branch of filmmaking with objectivity? And, of course, which Holocaust films are best and which are the most overrated?
The Holocaust Film Bible starts by uniquely categorizing 300 titles into major genres: Victim, Righteous Gentile, Survivor and Perpetrator. The list is then analyzed chronologically in four eras: The Post-War Era (1945-1973), which was marked by the first cinematic portrayals of the Holocaust; The Commercial Era (1974-1996), which included the beginning of made-for-television Holocaust films; The Mature Era (1997-2013), which saw the production of one Holocaust film every seven weeks; and The Final Era (2014-present), which produced very few Holocaust films annually, the majority of which were remakes of previous Holocaust films. Other major trends in Holocaust films are discussed, with an emphasis on the major personalities depicted in Holocaust films. This discussion continues with a history of the creative difficulties of Holocaust representations in general, and the challenges of depictions of Auschwitz/Birkenau, specifically. The analysis leads to a comprehensive analysis of Tim Blake Nelson’s The Grey Zone (2001), which ties together all previous discussions. Another chapter is devoted to the pedagogical challenges of teaching the Holocaust, generally, and using Holocaust films in the classroom, specifically. With all these lessons learned, the final one-third of the book is recommendations of the other 50 greatest Holocaust films ever made, including the author's reviews of each recommended film.
As a Holocaust film expert who lectures at the International School of Education at Yad Vashem, the world center for Holocaust studies in Jerusalem, Israel, the author is preeminently qualified to tackle these cinematic questions. The style of prose used in The Holocaust Film Bible is intended to mirror the media that the book describes – narrative filmmaking. Although difficult issues are regularly confronted, the book is neither dryly academic nor morose, but rather is punctuated by an uplifting set of revelations that challenge popular assumptions and unspoken truths.
The Holocaust Film Bible will be appreciated by film buffs, those interested in the Holocaust and educators.
This book has been recommended for publication by Professor Michael Berenbaum, Professor of Jewish Studies at the American Jewish University, the author and editor of 20 books, the Executive Editor of the Second Edition of the Encyclopaedia Judaica, and Project Director overseeing the creation of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
"It is without hesitation that I recommend Rich Brownstein's comprehensive and thought provoking book on Holocaust film. His insider knowledge of the film industry combined with his experience as a veteran Holocaust educator makes Mr. Brownstein uniquely able to not only recommend Holocaust movies to the general public, but to also advise classroom teachers on the decisions that need to be made and the considerations that need to be addressed when using film as a teaching tool. Additionally, reading his book not only as a Holocaust educator, but as a parent, I now find myself both better informed and motivated to more carefully screen or research any and all movies before allowing my own children to view them. In a world where entertainment reigns supreme, Mr. Brownstein's critical look at movies as a medium for educating the masses is a must-read for any parent and certainly for anyone in the field of education."
--Lori Gerson, Holocaust Educator
"I have had the opportunity to read an advance copy of Rich Brownstein's The Holocaust Film Bible. Anyone seeking a deeper understanding of Holocaust film – whether a teacher of Holocaust history, or simply a curious reader – will benefit from the breadth of Mr. Brownstein’s work. He explores a vast array of topics, ranging from the early history of Holocaust film, to an exploration of Holocaust film production from around the world, to a nuanced explanation of what, in fact, makes a Holocaust film a Holocaust film. Certainly, The Holocaust Film Bible covers the darkest of topics, but Mr. Brownstein, due to his expansive knowledge about, and sensitivity to his subject, has managed to write a book that is not only fascinating and illuminating, but engaging, and even a pleasure to read."
--Karen Askarinam, former lecturer in the Literature Department at American University, Washington, DC
