Representations of the Holocaust: Screening of Night and Fog + Q&A

Temple Hall Lecture Theatre
Event Time

Category Miscellaneous

How should we approach studying, teaching and critiquing cultural representations of the Holocaust? Gill Simpson and Adam Stock, York St John academics who teach such material at undergraduate level in different disciplines, explore how the Holocaust has been represented culturally. In 1955, Alain Resnais produced one of the first cinematic reflections on the Holocaust, Night and Fog (Nuit et Brouillard), documenting the abandoned grounds of Auschwitz and Majdanek. 

Following a screening of the film, Gill and Adam will lead a discussion on the challenges of critiquing fact-based Holocaust representations. Please be aware, Resnais’ film includes graphic footage of atrocities committed at Auschwitz and Majdanek death camps and their aftermath. This is not suitable for younger audiences.
