so as you did in the last unit buddy write 4 pages that connects all the movies (and what you learned from them)
1-The Holocaust – “Schindler’s List”* (Netflix)
Schindler’s List and Hotel Rwanda
Much debate has occurred over the Holocaust about if common people chose to ignore what was happening or were complicit. What role do individuals play in fighting crimes against humanity that are occurring in their country? Think of Paul in Rwanda and Schindler.
2-Cambodia – “The Killing Fields
The Killing Fields and The Devil Came on Horseback
What role does the press play in fighting genocide and other crimes against humanity? Does more of a light need to be put on these problems for the world to interact? Is that easier now in the age of social media and internet
3-Turkey/Armenia – “The Promise”
The genocide in Armenia is still controversial today as Turkey and many other countries do not recognize it as genocide. Why does that matter? What politics go into the use of the word genocide?
Other option: The genocide in Turkey happened during World War I, as did the Holocaust during WWII, so my question is: what role does the international community have to protect people during the outbreak of war?
4-Indonesia – “The Act of Killing”
Act of Killing
What about the politics of reconciliation and what comes after a genocide happens? How does a country move on? Can film and documentaries like this be helpful? What else needs to happen?
