Writers support political or social beliefs using the best of their talent. Sometimes they proffer morality and ethical principles using taboo subjects. However, books and films about the Shoah can counteract Holocaust deniers.

I wrote "Jacob's Courage" to promote Holocaust education. This coming of age love story presents accurate scenes and situations of Jews in ghettos and camps. Many portions of the book are grisly, but the events happened. SHould I have sugar-coated it? During the Holocaust, people had sex, ate, slept and performed all of the various bahaviors consistent with humanity. It is certainly not difficult to believe that sex, violence and death occurred during the Shoah.

I'm not attempting to evaluate the value of this film. I'm suggesting that virtually all Holocaust books and films, good and bad; can teach the public the truth about the Shoah. If viewing the film changes the mind of a single Holocaust doubter, then it's worth the effort.
