A Holocaust film is only good if accurate!

There have been so many holocaust films; some good, some not. Many want to show a certain aspect, and indeed there were so many, and as it really was, the holocaust brought the worst and the best in mankind. So much unfathomable cruelty and so much heroism; just from everyday people! Some films want to tug at people´s hearts at the expense of becoming sensational, over sentimental, and sometimes completely wrong. The danger here is that in a few generations, people may get the idea that the Holocaust wasn´t so bad after all, and all these stories of six million dead can´t be true! As the group of Shoah survivors becomes smaller every year, it´s so important that their stories are all heard. There needs to be experts and historians to research and check their facts before they let the cameras roll.

It's pretty funny/ironic that she has won her first oscar for a role in a holocaust movie (The Reader)...

Could asking this question be institutionalized antisemitist

Are there...
Enough war films?
Enough love comedies?
Enough Christmas movies?
Enough summer Camp movies?
Enough slavery films?
Enogh narcotics smuggling films.
The holocaust is a tough-gripping phenomenon still in our midst. It's not just a Jewish historical reality, but also a global one which involved and effected the world! It is implicitly anti-semitic to pose this question. It's as if to say the mouring should be complete, the Jewish complaining over. No, the holocaust is a living infective reality, only partially healed.

No, in fact there will never be enough

unfortunately most of our grandparents, holocaust survivors are beggining to pass away, and i believe with that as a result of this sad truth comes that cost of even more deniers of the holocaust because there will be no survivors around to tell their stories. this is why i believe it is so important to continue to spread the atrocities of this event for the future generations who were not born in time to meet these amazing people who are no longer in the world with us.
