    there are not many movies about the holocaust that have really captured it. there are thou however a few that do

    here is a list of some, but if i were you i would just watch movies about world war 2 in general. there are many out there on world war two that are pretty spectacular. i am for some reason addicted to learning about the holocaust but if i were you i would read books on it not watch movies. epically books written by survivors. the book Night is really amazing and also i will plant you a lilac tree, there are some other great ones i have read so just tell me if you want more. but like i said before movies don't really capture the suffering unless you are watching Schindler list witch is amazing

    Source(s): i have read, watched, and listened to over 100 things on the holocaust and world war 2

    The Pianist --I thought it was a movie about music, so I rented that and Schindler's List all in one night. I was a little depressed after that.

    Mos def see Life Is Beautiful --I thought it was about being happy in Italy, boy was I wrong. I mean all of a sudden I see the Nazi flag waving in the air.

    I rented it the night after the last two movies I mentioned. No wonder the cashier was looking at me all crazy.
