TheArchive's Oscar-Winning Holocaust Documentaries

On International Holocaust Remembrance Day TheArchive honors the millions who perished and the millions whose eternal light continues to shine as a beacon of hope.

The Holocaust stands as a stark reminder of the dangers of hatred, intolerance, and antisemitism, and it serves as a call to action for all people of conscience to work towards a more just and peaceful world.

Our extensive library of Holocaust films, many Oscar winning or nominated, spotlights the importance of remembering the past, and of the need to be vigilant against all forms of hate and discrimination.

We must remember the past in order to shape a better future for all people.  

Oscar winning documentary, The Long Way Home, echoes those ideals as it depicts the plight of Jewish refugees after World War II that contributed to the creation of the State of Israel. 

The film examines the horrific conditions for Jewish refugees even in post-war Europe, as antisemitism was still prevalent and poverty the norm. 

The formation of the State of Israel is explored, along with the ensuing debates around its formation.

Narrated by Morgan Freeman, The Long Way Home features Edward Asner, Sean Astin, and Martin Landau.

This Oscar-nominated documentary presents some of the most important facts about the Nazis' persecution against Jews in Europe, starting with Hitler's rise to power.

Genocide, an Academy Award-winning documentary, takes a harrowing look at life during the Holocaust. Orson Welles and Elizabeth Taylor lend their voices to this heartbreaking historical account.

Liberation is a retrospective of the Allied campaign to liberate Europe during WWII, and Hitler's genocidal war with film footage, music, and radio broadcasts collected from around the world. Ben Kingsley, Whoopi Goldberg, and Patrick Stewart narrate.

For most, the idea of Jewish resistance during the Holocaust is limited to the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. Unlikely Heroes chronicles untold stories of resistance and heroics throughout the Holocaust.

I Have Never Forgotten You, narrated by Nicole Kidman, provides an intimate portrait of famed Nazi hunter and humanitarian, Simon Wiesenthal, looking closely at the sacrifices made by one of history's bravest men.

Narrated by Martin Landau, Echoes that Remain is a richly painted picture of Eastern European Jewry before the Holocaust. Folk stories, parables, and anecdotes come together in a complex tapestry woven from archival research and oral histories.

In Remembrance of Lovestarring Kirk Douglas and Pam Dawber, a widower journeys to Israel with his daughter to attend the World Gathering of Holocaust Survivors and search for his first love from whom he was separated during the war. What he discovers he will indeed remember for all eternity.

On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we come together as a community to remember the victims, to honor the survivors, and to reaffirm our commitment to combating antisemitism and all forms of genocide

Never forget.
