Holocaust Memorial Day genocide film screening and discussion

This activity provides a list of suggested films about genocides which occurred after the Holocaust that you can screen, and questions for discussion. It can be used by any HMD activity organiser.

Holocaust Memorial Day genocide film screening and discussion

The films listed in the resource come with a brief description and age rating to help you choose the right film for your audience. We always recommend that you watch the film first before showing it to others.

There are a number of ways your group may choose to watch a film given the need for social distancing. Group viewing from your homes is possible using third party extensions such as Netflix Party. You may choose to have your discussion over a platform such as Zoom, in which case you may find the Community Security Trust’s advice on secure live streaming useful.

If you choose to screen a film outside your home for a group, you may need a licence – more information about if you need a licence and how to get one, is available from the Independent Cinema Office.
