What are the best holocaust movies?
I've seen Schindler's List and The Pianist, both were amazing. I personally thought The Pianist was better. Are there any more holocaust movies that I have been missing out on?
I've also seen The Boy In the Striped Pajamas. It was so sad I cried for nearly an hour after the movie finished.

The Boy In The Striped Pajamas (2008)
Bruno, an eight-year-old German boy who leads a rather comfortable life in Berlin during the World War II. His father is a high ranking Nazi SS officer, but things change when the family has to move due to his father's new post. In his innocence, Bruno sees the nearby concentration camp as a "farm" and wonders why its inhabitants are always wearing striped pyjamas. Eventually Bruno becomes friends with a Jewish boy his own age who lives on the other side of the fence.
Schindler's List (1993)
"This pin. Two people. This is gold. Two more people. He would have given me two for it, at least one. One more person. A person, Stern. For this. I could have gotten one more person … and I didn't! And I … I didn't!"
Oskar Schindler, a German businessman who saved the lives of more than a thousand Polish Jewish refugees during the Holocaust by employing them in his factories.
Although loosely structured, the film is concerned mainly with four topics: Chełmno, where gas vans were first used to exterminate Jews; the death camps of Treblinka and Auschwitz-Birkenau; and the Warsaw Ghetto, with testimonies from survivors, witnesses, and perpetrators.
It is the story of a teenage boy (the Nobel Prize winner author Imre Kertész) who is sent to concentration camps at Auschwitz, Buchenwald, and Zeitz.
Triumph of the Spirit (1989)
The majority of the film is set in the death camp at Auschwitz during the Holocaust and details how Nazi SS guards forced Jewish boxer Salamo Arouch to fight other internees to the death for their entertainment.
Life Is Beautiful (1997)
Guido Orefice who must employ his fertile imagination to help his son survive their internment in a Nazi concentration camp.
(Distant Journey) (1950)
Hana, a Jewish eye doctor who falls in love and marries a Gentile named Toník. Their simple love story becomes a nightmare when the government begins the systematized extermination of the Jews. Hana's family is transported to Theresienstadt, and the romance becomes a struggle for survival.
The Grey Zone (2001)
The story of the Jewish Sonderkommando XII in the Auschwitz concentration camp in October 1944. These prisoners were made to assist the camp's guards in shepherding their victims to the gas chambers.

Those are the only two movies that I am aware of.
If you're really in the mood for an experience however, the next time your're in the Washington DC Area you might want to try a visit to The Holocaust Museum.
Very powerful experience.
