Historical movies, novels, art, and comics shape how we remember the past. How do fictional representations relate to the truth historians have established about the past? Focusing on the Holocaust and Holocaust perpetrators, this conversation will examine the chasm between fiction and scholarship. Prominent Holocaust scholars will discuss whether we can learn from ever more pervasive representations in popular and high culture.
