Stroum Lectures by eminent scholars in the field of Jewish Studies, delivered at the University of Washington for the Samuel and Althea Stroum Jewish Studies program. A "quick talk" about portrayals of the Holocaust in film with Dr. Richard Block is online now! 

20 minutes, and a great preview for his fall course, Popular Film and the Holocaust. This lecture looks at how the Holocaust is portrayed in films, and how the 2015 Hungarian film "Son of Saul" addresses concerns about creating representations of the Holocaust.
