Kristallnacht on Film: From Reportage to Reenactments, 1938-1988
November 9, 2020 6:30 P.M. via Zoom

This year’s community-wide Kristallnacht commemoration, presented in partnership with Congregation Kol Ami, will feature Dr. Lawrence Baron.

In the absence of firsthand footage of Kristallnacht, newsreels, documentaries and feature films employed a range of approaches to depict it in the ensuing decade. Dr. Baron will trace the evolution of these cinematic images within chronological and national contexts until home movies of the event surfaced in the 1980s. Clips of these portrayals of Kristallnacht will be screened.

Dr. Baron held the Nasatir Chair in Modern Jewish History at San Diego State University from 1988 until 2012. He is the author of Projecting the Holocaust into the Present: The Changing Focus of Contemporary Holocaust Cinema.
