Adrian Brody in The PianistPutting aside any discomfort you may have with the idea of ranking Holocaust cinema, what do you think of this blogger’s Top 10 List (click link for an explanation of each of his choices)? Then use comments space below to share your thoughts:

10. Holocaust (1978)

9. Escape from Sobibor (1987)

8. Defiance (2008)

7. Life is Beautiful (1997)

6. Europa, Europa (1990)

4. The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (2008)

3. The Pianist (2002)

2. Night and Fog (1951)

Which ones have you seen? Which ones should have made the list and didn’t? News to me was that Meryl Streep was in a Holocaust film other than Sophie’s Choice (ed. note, it was actually a TV mini-series). The blogger’s name is Stuart Cummins and I couldn’t find much information about him other than he’s a self-professed film aficionado.
