An Online Film Festival Commemorates the Liberation of the Nazi Concentration Camps

Liberation75 bills itself as the world’s largest commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps. Among the numerous online discussions and events, it is also hosting a free virtual film festival.

The titles include the 1940 Charlie Chaplin satire The Great Dictator, Alain Resnais’s landmark postwar documentary Night and Fog, and Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List.
