Cure it with Movies/Books: Holocaust Remembrance Day

Today, January 27th, is International Holocaust Remembrance Day and I would like to dedicate this "Cure it with Movies/Books" post remembering the Holocaust victims.

I sometimes made the mistake to think that the World War II releated movies are all the same and everytime I found myself in error.
Here's my list of movies and books t watch and read in this special day. #WeDon'tForget

Movies :

File:Vitaebella.jpgLife is Beatiful (1997) by Roberto Benigni. With Roberto Benigni, Nicoletta Braschi, 
Giorgio Cantarini and Horst Buchholz. This is one of the most touching and meaningful movie about what Jews have suffered in the concentration camps. It won 4 Academy Awards (Best Music, Original Dramatic Score, and Best Foreign Language Film. Benigni also won Best Actor for his role.)
