No Place on Earth is a 2012 Docudrama directed by Janet Tobias. The film was released theatrically in the United States on April 5, 2013.

In 1993, NYPD officer and caving enthusiast Chris Nicola visited Ukraine to explore the Verteba and Priest's Grotto caves, and found evidence that they had recently been inhabited by humans. After discovering that the caves were used by Jews escaping The Holocaust, he embarked on a decade-long quest to find survivors. The film features interviews with survivors and their descendants, now living mainly in New York City and Montreal, and includes a segment in which Tobias brings some of the survivors, the oldest of whom was in his 90s, into the caves.

The film was shown at the Toronto International Film Festival, the Hamptons International Film Festival, the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam, and the Jewish Film Festival Berlin. Its screenwriters, Janet Tobias and Paul Laikin, were finalists for the 2014 Award for Documentary Screenplay from the Writers Guild of America.

Night and Fog is a documentary that alternates between past and present and features both black-and-white and color footage. The first part of Night and Fog shows remnants of Auschwitz while the narrator Michel Bouquet describes the rise of Nazi ideology. The film continues with comparisons of the life of the Schutzstaffel to the starving prisoners in the camps. Bouquet then addresses the sadism inflicted upon the doomed inmates, including torture, scientific and medical "experiments", executions, and prostitution. The next section is shown completely in black-and-white, and depicts images of gas chambers and piles of bodies. The final topic of the film depicts the liberation of the country, the discovery of the horror of the camps, and the questioning of who was responsible for them.

Quelques mois avant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, une extraordinaire opération de sauvetage a arraché 10 000 enfants et adolescents juifs au régime nazi. Rapatriés en Grande-Bretagne pour être adoptés, ils durent tisser de nouveaux liens familiaux, supporter les bombardements pour certains, aller libérer leurs propres parents restés en Allemagne. Ils ont tous d'inoubliables histoires à raconter dans ce documentaire.

Les Stalags sont des livres de poche dont les intrigues tournent autour de vigoureuses femmes officier SS qui abusent des prisonniers. Au cours des années 1960, parallèlement au procès contre le criminel de guerre nazi Adolf Eichmannl, les ventes de cette littérature pornographique ont battu tous les records en Israël et des centaines de milliers d’exemplaires ont été vendus dans les kiosques. La popularité des Stalags a faibli seulement après le procès contre leurs auteurs qui ont été accusés de distribution pornographique antisémite. Ce film traite de ce phénomène, et confirme aussi que la combinaison de pornographie et Holocauste apparaît également dans la littérature canonique sur l’Holocauste et qui continue jusqu’à présent à faire partie de la représentation de l’Holocauste en Israël.
