Jewish Federation of San Antonio

Film Screening: German Concentration Camps Factual Survey 6pm
Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Campus of the San Antonio Jewish Community

Ordered in April 1945 by the Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force, the film is an official documentary about German atrocities and the concentration camps compiled with footage shot by combat and newsreel cameramen accompanying troops as they liberated occupied Europe. It was to be the film screened in Germany after the fall of the Third Reich shown to German prisoners of war wherever they were held. Making a long film about such an important and complex subject was difficult. Progress was slow and the film missed its moment.

Described by critics as 'an impressive and important piece of filmmaking, restored with intelligence and care by the Imperial War Museum, the film has been digitally restored and, with the assembly for the first time of the sixth and final reel, the Museum has completed the film to the instructions laid down by the original production team in 1945.
