Sidney Bernstein and Alfred Hitchcock's 1945 Holocaust Documentary

Get a special discount on tickets to Hitchcock's restored Holocaust documentary.

On Tuesday, May 19, join the Tribeca Film Festival and the Museum of Jewish Heritage in a presentation of Sidney Bernstein and Alfred Hitchcock's 1945 Holocaust Documentary titled German Concentration Camps Factual Survey.

Intended to be shown to the German public to condemn the Nazi regime, this film features newsreel and documentary footage filmed after British troops liberated the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Aptril 1945. A collaboration between Sidney Bernstein, Chief of the Film Division of the Psychological Warfare Division of the Allied Expeditionary Force, and Alfred Hitchcock, who was described by Bernstein as the film's "director," German Concentration Camps Factual Survey was eventually shelved.

The Museum of Jewish Heritage will screen a digitally restored version, assembled for the first time exactly as it was meant to be. Stay after the screening for a discussion with New York Times columnist Roger Cohen, 3 Generations founder and Bernstein's daughter Jane Wells. Dr. Stuart Liebman, Professor Emeritus of CUNY Graduate Center will moderate.

As a special offer for our readership, use the code "Tribeca" for discounted tickets, available for purchase here.

We're a day away from the conclusion of our #WomensHistoryMonth spotlight on Tribeca selections from women directors. We hope you'll seek these films out and discover a future favorite among these treasures, including CALIFORNIA, a sleekly evocative drama from @MarinaPerson, an actress, filmmaker, and former @MTV VJ who finally achieved her dream of making a fictional feature this past year. In Person's narrative debut, Estela, a young Brazilian teenager, dreams of The Golden State and evolves with the eighties. Person explores every nook and cranny of this uncertain decade, perfectly crystallized in this heartfelt cinematic treat.
