Still from Jes Benstock’s short film Holocaust Tourist

Jes Benstock’s short film Holocaust Tourist is being screened online to mark Holocaust Memorial Day. This is a wry animated documentary about how Holocaust tourism distorts history.

It is a whistle-stop tour from Auschwitz hot-dogs to Krakow's kitsch Judaica. How is dark tourism changing history?

The film is followed by a discussion between Holocaust educator Mike Levy and Jes Benstock.

In partnership with UK Jewish Film.

The film Holocaust Tourist and the community event discussion with UK Jewish Film are now now available to watch until 10pm on 27 January 2022.
