Preserving Survivors’ Legacy Through Holocaust Stories

Tuesday, June 25, 2024
6:30 pm ET
The Paley Museum, 25 West 52 Street, NYC

Holocaust stories, whether scripted or nonfiction, remain a powerful tool to understand one of the darkest chapters in human history, helping to inform the present about the need to combat any form of hatred or antisemitism. The stories of the Holocaust especially help to educate a younger generation about the systematic horrors of the Nazi regime, while honoring the experiences of the survivors and victims. Amid the rising tide of antisemitism, Holocaust narratives endure as a stark reminder of the dangers of unchecked prejudice and can inspire an audience to promote tolerance.

Contemporary filmmakers have discovered compelling stories that shed new light on the Holocaust. The Paley Center will bring together documentary and fiction filmmakers to explore new ways Holocaust stories are being told, especially to engage the next generation. The panel will explore why we must learn lessons from this dark past to combat antisemitism and work toward a more tolerant future.

This event is made possible by generous support from The Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation

Part of Paley's ongoing series, Media's Role in Combating Antisemitism.
