On Tuesday, May 19, join the Tribeca Film Festival and the Museum of Jewish Heritage in a presentation of Sidney Bernstein and Alfred Hitchcock's 1945 Holocaust Documentary titled German Concentration Camps Factual Survey.
Intended to be shown to the German public to condemn the Nazi regime, this film features newsreel and documentary footage filmed after British troops liberated the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Aptril 1945. A collaboration between Sidney Bernstein, Chief of the Film Division of the Psychological Warfare Division of the Allied Expeditionary Force, and Alfred Hitchcock, who was described by Bernstein as the film's "director," German Concentration Camps Factual Survey was eventually shelved.
The Museum of Jewish Heritage will screen a digitally restored version, assembled for the first time exactly as it was meant to be. Stay after the screening for a discussion with New York Times columnist Roger Cohen, 3 Generations founder and Bernstein's daughter Jane Wells. Dr. Stuart Liebman, Professor Emeritus of CUNY Graduate Center will moderate.
