German Concentration Camps Factual Survey: North American Theatrical Premiere of Documentary Revealing Uncensored Atrocities of the Nazi Regime
After being shelved by the British Government in 1945 and following a decades-long residency at Britain’s Imperial War Museum, German Concentration Camps Factual Survey, a feature-length documentary film revealing shocking, uncensored images of the atrocities committed by the Nazi regime during the Holocaust, will have its North American theatrical premiere on January 6, 2017 at 5:00 PM at Cinema Village in New York City. Opening night will feature an introduction and Q&A by late filmmaker Sidney Bernstein’s children, award-winning filmmaker Jane Wells (Tricked, The Devil Came on Horseback) and lawyer David Bernstein.
Commissioned by the Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force (SHAEF) and produced by Sidney Bernstein with guidance from Alfred Hitchcock, this lost masterpiece of British documentary film consists of footage shot in 1945 as Allied troops liberated Nazi-occupied Europe. German Concentration Camps Factual Survey was intended to be shown to German prisoners of war and to definitively refute potential denials of the Holocaust, but production was halted due to a change in the British government’s post-war priorities. An unfinished cut of the film was screened on September 29, 1945, but the British government actively suppressed it from that point on. The film was not completed and released in full until 2014 at the Berlin International Film Festival.
