Partners with Shoah Foundation to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day

Comcast and Steven Spielberg’s USC Shoah Foundation Institute have launched the Holocaust “Days of Remembrance” series. The series will include ten films about the Holocaust and will be available to Comcast subscribers on demand.

“We are extremely pleased to be working with Comcast,” said Spielberg, who founded the Shoah Foundation in 1994. “This partnership allows us to expand significantly the reach and impact of our documentary films and enables us to touch millions of people across the United States.”

The 10 docs include Oscar-winning “The Last Days” and other films with firsthand accounts from Holocaust survivors. The series will be available for free now through May 25, overlapping with Holocaust Remembrance Day on May 1, and can be found in Comcast subscribers’ On Demand section. The docu slate will also be available via broadband to Comcast subscribers at XfinityTV.com.
