Cine y memoria (I): colaboracionismo, Iglesia y nazis huidos


  • Barrenetxea Marañón, Igor


Cinema underlines -even from fiction- a way to understand the past from the present and, therefore, an intention to manage historical memory. This article -in this way- tries to appreciate -from the choice of five films which are about the Nazi phenomenon- how it is presented in the European conscience. This analysis reflects the validity at the time of considering cinema as an important ideological transmitter which leads us to reflect about some events which left a mark on European history and, even today, which continue being a source of controversy and permanent arguments; for example the Catholic Church's attitude about the Holocaust, the role played by the collaborators before -with its respective concealment- and after the War, the lessons about hatred or racism and the moral relationship of Germans with the Nazi regime or the current Jewish relationship with Germans. In this way, cinema serves the purpose of reflecting about history and the society which it is directed at.
