The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance will present the rarely seen documentary film German Concentration Camps Factual Survey on Monday, August 3.

Beginning in 1944, cameramen documented the horrors discovered following the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps. The footage was so powerful and damning that propagandists determined it should be made into a documentary, which would condemn the Nazi regime, prevent denial and shame the German people into acceptance of the Allied occupation.

At the Ministry of Information in London, British media baron Sidney Bernstein assembled an expert team that included Alfred Hitchcock, but the film was eventually shelved. The Imperial War Museum began the process of restoring the film using the filmmaker’s rough cut, script and shot list. It premiered at the 2014 Berlin International Film Festival.

The film will begin at 7 p.m. at Cinemark 17 & IMAX Theatre at 11819 Webb Chapel Road in Dallas. A panel discussion will take place afterward. There is no cost to attend this event but RSVP is required due to limited seating. Please RSVP to rsvp@DallasHolocaustMuseum.org.

For more information, call 214.741.7500 or visit DallasHolocaustMuseum.org.

This program was made possible in part with a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The event is also sponsored by Academic Partnerships and Cinemark.
