The Memorial Museum’s Film Library includes a collection of published documentary and feature films on Holocaust-related subjects that is available for viewing by the public. Films are checked out on a weekly basis, free of charge, to educators and lay-members of our community alike. If you are interested in checking out a film, please call us at (210) 302-6807, send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop by the Museum.
From Anne Frank and Judgment at Nuremberg to Valkyre and The Reader, major-studio movies have often done a noble job telling World War II stories in ways that illuminate rather than exploit the inherent drama of the Holocaust. This trailer offers a sampling of the films available in our collection, as well as those to be shown at the 2012 Jewish Film Festival in San Antonio, TX. Titles include: My Best Enemy, Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness, An Ordinary Execution, The Round Up (La Rafle), Nicky's Family, Little Rose, The Matchmaker, The Names of Love, Eichmann's End: Love, Betrayal, Death, and I Shall Remember.
In 2012, the Holocaust Memorial Museum will be hosting a monthly movie screening featuring a diverse selection of films related to the Holocaust and modern genocides. Please check our Upcoming Events Page for further details. We also look forward to bringing our film library into the future as we convert old VHS into DVDs, thanks to generous donations of much needed technology by our patrons.
