“Feeling utterly satisfied with a book after finishing it is a very rare thing, and if a glaring gap in the historiography is filled, that satisfaction goes together with an impression of scientific achievement. This is exactly how I felt after reading [‘First Films of the Holocaust’]. . . .It is my belief that the author’s clear and convincing presentation shall reinstate these images in the field of international studies of the Holocaust, since they form a crucial chapter of the history of Soviet cinema."
―Studies in Russian and Soviet Cinema
”Words like ‘pioneering’ and ‘foundational’ aptly describe Hick’s extraordinary account of the long-forgotten but historically important corpus of Soviet documentary and fiction films about Nazi atrocities. . . . Splendid archival research and an excellent filmography make this a superb resource for students of history as well as film. Essential.”
“Hick’s analysis of the narrative tropes of the first films of the Holocaust helps illuminate the visual discourse of the Holocaust and provides documentation about the Holocaust itself. Despite its difficult, traumatic subject matter, the book is very easy to read. A valuable, well-organized, and well-researched source of information about Russian cinema of this period.”
--Slavic and East European Journal
