Holocaust Comedyby glennspetgang | created - 18 Jan 2017 | updated - 02 Feb 2018 | Public
Movie comedy that is about or refers to the Jewish Holocaust. I have so far only seen The Great Dictator, Jacob The Liar, Life Is Beautiful, and parts of To Be Or Not To Be and The Three Stooges and Bob Watson playing Hitler. I am very thankful to Lawrence Baron, author of Projecting the Holocaust Into the Present, for help in providing titles for this list.
