The Oscars constitute Hollywood’s recognition of the movies which were the most cinematically, financially, or socially significant in the year of their release. Between 1945 and 1960, a number of documentaries and feature films relating to the Holocaust garnered Oscars or nominations. Based on how they depicted the Shoah, this lecture, led by Dr. Lawrence Baron, traces the contours of American awareness of the Holocaust in those years.
