Holocaust: Night Will Fall
A powerful documentary about the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps and how combat and newsreel cameramen filmed the almost unbelievable scenes they found there. When Allied forces liberated the Nazi concentration camps in 1944-45, their terrible discoveries revealed for the first time the full horror of what had happened. Making use of British, Soviet and American footage, the Ministry of Information's Sidney Bernstein aimed to create a documentary that would provide lasting evidence of the Nazis' unspeakable crimes. He commissioned a wealth of British talent, including his friend Alfred Hitchcock.
