  1. EVENT CANCELLED: Holocaust Remembrance film: "Conspiracy" (2001)

    April 5, 2020, 2:00 PM @ Visitors Center Auditorium

    Notice: Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Effective Friday, March 13 at 5 p.m. CDT, the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum is closed to the public until further notice. Film Summary: At the Wannsee Conference on January 20, 1942, senior Nazi officials meet to determine the manner in which the so-called "Final Solution to the Jewish Question" can be best implemented. The execution of every Jewish person in Europe was their goal. A transcript of the meeting has survived, and that document provided the basis for the screenplay for "Conspiracy," which dramatizes (in real time) the meeting that led to the greatest crime of the 20th century. The film features an ensemble cast, including Colin Firth, David Threlfall, Kenneth Branagh as Reinhard Heydrich and Stanley Tucci as Adolf Eichmann. Branagh won an Emmy Award for Best Actor, and Tucci was awarded a Golden Globe for his supporting role as Eichmann.

  5. EVENT CANCELLED: Holocaust Remembrance film: "Denial" (2016)

    April 26, 2020, 2:00 PM @ Visitors Center Auditorium

    Notice: Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Effective Friday, March 13 at 5 p.m. CDT, the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum is closed to the public until further notice. Film summary: Based on her acclaimed book "History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier," this film recounts Deborah E. Lipstadt’s (Rachel Weisz) legal battle for historical truth against David Irving (Timothy Spall), who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier. In the United Kingdom legal system, in cases of libel, the burden of proof is on the defendant, therefore it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team, led by Richard Rampton (Tom Wilkinson), to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred.
