(JNS.org) A documentaryÂ film has been releasedÂ about anotherÂ documentary made in the aftermath of the HolocaustÂ with the involvement of famous directorÂ Alfred HitchockÂ using real footage taken by Soviet and British soldiers while liberatingÂ concentration camps such asÂ Bergen-Belsen.
The original documentary titled “German Concentration Camps Factual Survey”Â was meant to be shown to the German people in the aftermath of the Holocaust in order for them to seeÂ the horrors committed by the Nazis.
However theÂ documentary was suppressed due toÂ “the changing political situation, particularly for the British,”Â Dr. Toby Haggith, senior curator at the Imperial War Museum, told the British Independent newspaper.
The new documentary filmÂ about the suppressed film is titled “Night Will Fall” and premiered on the HBO network Monday beforeÂ International Holocaust Memorial Day on Tuesday.
