JFCS Holocaust Center’s Director of Education, Morgan Blum Schneider, will be leading a post-film discussion for German Concentration Camps Factual Survey | directed by Sidney Bernstein
This harrowing documentary was produced by Sidney Bernstein for the British Ministry of Information following the end of World War II, with Alfred Hitchcock listed as a “treatment advisor” on the assemblage and editing of footage. A change in Anglo-American relations by the time the film was ready for release meant the film was shelved and has not been shown until now. Please note that due to the graphic nature of the footage, no one under 18 years of age will be admitted.
