Hitchcock’s Documentary on the Holocaust

Director Alfred Hitchcock made a documentary, entitled Memory of the Camps, on the Holocaust in 1945. Hitchcock used the rushes of the British military film crews that had filmed the liberation of concentration camps, such as Bergen-Belsen, that year.

The documentary has recently been restored by the Imperial War Museum and will be screened in 2015 as part of the commemoration of the end of the Second World War.

In the meantime, the video of the restored film is available online on YouTube.
