Reader Post: Alfred Hitchcock’s Holocaust Documentary
Israel Video Network posted a video in January that I’ve been meaning to see:
In 1945 renown movie director, Alfred Hitchcock was asked to produce a film that would document the horrors of the Holocaust. That movie proved so potent, so damning that the allies suppressed the film’s release.
According to the Independent, Hitchcock’s documentary on the Holocaust was mothballed to the Imperial War Museum, much like the fictional Ark of the Covenant was at the conclusion of Steven Spielberg’s, Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Upon discovering Hitchcock’s video record of the worst genocide in human history in a number of rusty video cans in the 1980?s, the Imperial War Museum painstakingly restored the film which has now finally been released for all to see.
Since today is Yom Hashoah, I figured this was the day.
