2015 is a unique moment in time when there is a surge of Holocaust-related stories being told by survivors and young filmmakers.

Films about the Holocaust tell universal stories as well as those that are deeply personal. They tap into the very human themes of courage, tragedy identity and hope, often in an attempt to make sense of the incomprehensible.
