There are many documentaries and feature films that have shown the events of the Holocaust during the early 1940s in Europe. We will focus on three feature films that are closely based on factual events to attempt to come to terms with and understand this uniquely historical horror. The films are "The Wannsee Conference,” Germany, 1984, where the responsibility to carry out murder was seized by the SS organization headed by Himmler; "Korczak,” Poland, 1990, the portrait of Dr. Goldszmit/ Korczak, a Polish-Jewish doctor and orphanage director in the Warsaw Ghetto who was murdered in Treblinka; and "Son of Saul,” Hungary, 2015, based on “The Scrolls of Auschwitz,” testimonies of members of Sonderkommando, showing a day and a half in this most infamous extermination camp.
