The Power of Nightmares: The Rise of the Politics of Fear
Directed by Adam Curtis (2004)

But the fear will not last, and just as the dreams that politicians once promised turned out to be illusions, so, too, will the nightmares;
and then our politicians will have to face the fact that they have no visions, either good or bad, to offer us any longer.

A Time for Burning

Shoah
Directed by Claude Lanzmann (1985)

In the 35 years after the war, I don't go back. I have been a teacher for 25 years. I never mention the
Jewish problem to my students. I understand this film is for historical record, so I will try to do it.
