The Holocaust in American Film
Paying special attention to the tumultuous 1960s in America, Doneson assesses the effect of the era on Holocause films made during that time. She also discusses how these films helped integrate the Holocause into the fabric of American society, transforming it into a metaphor for modern suffering. Finally, she explores cinema in relation to the Americanization of the Jewish image and Jewish history itself.
