Kristallnacht on Film: From Reportage to Reenactments, 1938-1988
This year’s community-wide Kristallnacht commemoration on November 9 at 6:30 pm via ZOOM, will feature Dr. Lawrence Baron. In the absence of first hand 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 1980’s. Clips of these portrayals of Kristallnacht will be screened.
Dr. Barton’s presentation is supported by the MCHE Jack Mandelbaum Holocaust Education Fund at the Jewish Coomunity Foundation of Greater Kansas City.
