Laughter After: Humor and the Holocaust argues that humor performs political, cultural, and social functions in the wake of horror. Co-editors David Slucki, Gabriel N. Finder, and Avinoam
Patt have assembled an impressive list of contributors who examine what is at stake in deploying humor in representing the Holocaust.

The Last Laugh (2016, documentary film, 88 minutes) Are we allowed to make jokes about the Holocaust? This outrageously funny and thought-provoking film puts the question about comedy’s ultimate taboo to comedy legends.

Featuring post-film discussion and book launch with film director, Ferne Pearlstein and Robert Edwards, in conversation with Dr. Avinoam Patt.
