Documentaries

Postby Jeffk 1970 » Sun Apr 30, 2017 2:46 am

I caught a documentary called "Night Will Fall," a documentary based on a never completed film on German Concentration Camps. The actual name of the film was "German Concentration Camps Factual Survey." I haven't seen the the film, I'm going to look around for it. The documentary is on Netflix. Hitchcock directed it and it was produced by Sidney Bernstein.
The film used footage shot at Bergen-Belsen, Dachau, Majdanek and Auschwitz. Interestingly, the footage shot at Majdanek and Auschwitz was treated with suspicion because it was initially believed to be propaganda (oh, the irony!!!!!).
It was never finished due to the shifting priorities we all talk about, i.e., the burgeoning Cold War and the need to recruit and rehabilitate the German people. Also, there was awkwardness over the issues bubbling up regarding Palestine and the Jews trying to emigrate there. The US withdrew its support and wound up making their own film called "Death Mills."

Anyway, I thought we could use this thread to talk about documentaries we've seen about the Holocaust or WW II.

Off the top of my head, here are some worth watching:

"Auschwitz: The Nazis and 'The Final Solution"

"World War II Behind Closed Doors: Stalin, the Nazis and the West"

"Auschwitz: Blueprints of Genocide"

I've sent a PM to Pyrro, see if we can make it a sticky.

Saw it last year on Netflix.... interesting how the project got shelved and revivified... i kind of thought that when it resurfaced most recently that Berg would have gone into paroxysms of infantile, paranoid rage.... but yeah, for those here of, shall we say a more sane demeanor, it's a very interesting piece of the historical record.

One I've never seen in it's entirety is "Shoah." I've seen bits and pieces here and there but not the whole thing. When I had Netflix's DVD service I put it in my que but I dropped the service before I got it. They didn't have the complete set.

It's an incredibly long documentary and I can't help but mention that apparently it's production values have not aged well with time.

Thanks Jeff, we just got a smart TV (after our old one burned out) so my wife will be happy to know we can watch that on Netflix after they pay the damned ransom.

I saw all of Shoah when it came out. It was excellent and it didn't feel too long; I might have had a VHS version or maybe I saw it on TV, I can't remember, we watched a couple of hours a night. I bought a DVD version in Paris in 2015, to watch it again, and couldn't play it because of an incompatible format to US DVD players.

I don't watch a lot of stuff - but I have seen A Film Unfinished, also excellent, I strongly recommend it, and Partisans of Vilna, which had some interesting things in it.

I haven't seen it in one start-finish run for years. I know my daughter mentioned within the last couple years that more or less all of it was viewable in chunks on Y-Tube.

It's dated to be sure, and our HDers get their colons in a knot because Lanzman apparently paid certain witnesses to appear.

There is a four-part documentary on the Einsatzgruppen on Netflix I mean to watch. Problem is it's in French so I'll have to watch it with Subtitles. I loathe subtitles, I'd prefer it dubbed so I can actually watch the program instead of reading it.
Same problem with "Last of the Unjust."

I've watched a few opening minutes of the first one, I can see what you are talking about.

What about the film 'The Unseen Holocaust' with the archive Jeremy Hicks discovered in Moscow, which actually includes footage of Soviet coroners-medical examiners performing autopsies in victims' skulls etc?

I didn't know about that one. Hicks' book is worth reading and fits well with Shneer's on Soviet Jewish photographers.

If you can find it (I couldn't this morning) I recommend Inside a Death Camp: The Sobibor Story. It pops up now and again on the History Channel. I saw it a few years ago. It was narrated by Tony Jay, a British voice actor who bears a striking resemblance to the Ugly Voice Guy.

I started watching that with my son in the room, the first ominous voice saying "Auschwitz!" made him jump out of his seat.

I tried really hard not to laugh and failed miserably.

Nice!
Since you'll watch it with your children, Jeff, there are very graphic pictures inside it, especially with the unearthing of the mass graves in Babi Yar etc. It was broadcasted by the Greek Public TV a couple of months ago, and -although I've seen a lot of films from these years- it was an apocalypse, this nazi barbarism. Hicks and the other historians point out that some scenes are staged by the Soviets, but even with that in mind, the scenes are true and very very ugly.

I searched a little if the film exists somewhere without these Greek embedded subtitles, but I didn't find it all. Maybe this is the only copy on the internet globally, I don't know.

It worth your time, you'll see.

We'll wait for this one:

- The four-and-a-half-hour Nazi documentary you can’t afford to miss
First released 40 years ago, ‘The Memory of Justice’ uses the Nuremberg Trials as a springboard for unanswerable questions.

My mistake, I follow the forum on my phone and I watch things on it and my Kindle.

I hit the link without thinking, I'm sitting in my chair and he's on the couch (my second son has now joined him). He can't see it but he can hear.

I have to be careful, I was puttering around the kitchen yesterday doing things and "Night Will Fall" was on. My youngest son came in to get something to drink and I ran over and turned it off.

He asked me about it, I told him that someday he and I can talk about it but not now. He's only 9, I'd like him not to worry about such things right now.

Who will volunteer a bit?
Can anyone who knows 'Night will fall' take a quick look at these two videos, just a few seconds in the start and in the end, and tell me if it is indeed 'Night will fall'?
I didn't find it on-line (just these annoying click-baits YT videos that send you on some ads site to register etc) and I try to find out if it's the same.

It's no classic.

Dr. Hick's really shouldn't have needed me to point out who his SK was, nor that his "discovery" was already known

It deliberately misportrays German footage of a legal—by International law—execution of Yugoslavian partisans

It quote-mines and misrepresents Heydrich's famous memo of Sept 21, 1939

https://forum.codoh.com/viewtopic.php?p=64204#p64204

Considering I addressed this documentary over three years ago, I wouldn't now necessarily agree with everything I posted on the codoh or rodoh threads. For example, I went into the greatest depth about the propaganda footage of the exhumations at Rostov-on-Don, early claims about massacres which happened there, and the fact that Action 1005 never operated there.

Until the article "Rostov-on-Don 1942: A Little-Known Chapter of the Holocaust" by Christina Winkler, appeared in the Spring 2016 edition of Holocaust and Genocide Studies [30/1], there was scant few details in the published literature, at least in English, about the Holocaust in Rostov-on-Don. Just ask Stat Mech, who was invited, accepted, but failed to ever response to the thread. So, basically, I'm well aware that many of my points from 2014 were answered/refuted by Winkler's 2016 article.

I watched the documentary "Nazi Concentration Camps" on Netflix yesterday.
American occupation forces documented the various concentration camps as they liberated them, this movie is the result.
They talked about the following:
Hadamar (not a concentration camp)
Leipzig (camp near the town)
Penig (camp near the town)
Ohrdruff (Patton and Eisenhower documented as examining) One interesting thing documented is a grill system used to burn bodies. It's amazing how prevalent this system of burning was.
Breendonck in Belgium
Hanover
Nordhausen
Belsen
Dachau (gas chamber shown and demonstrated)
Mauthausen
Buchenwald

The images of corpses and starving prisoners still burn. Victims showed the results of torture. A US officer testified on camera about the existence of a gas chamber at Mauthausen. I know we've discussed this bit before.

There were obvious issues with this, camps were described as "death camps," a misconception understandable at the time.
I was reluctant to watch this, but, it was not bad. If nothing else it showed the conditions in the camps at the end of the war.

notes from a prior thread on this movie and the relevance of each camp to denier claims about the Holocaust: like Jeffk says, little about that

The images of corpses and starving prisoners still burn. Victims showed the results of torture. A US officer testified on camera about the existence of a gas chamber at Mauthausen. I know we've discussed this bit before.

There were obvious issues with this, camps were described as "death camps," a misconception understandable at the time.
I was reluctant to watch this, but, it was not bad. If nothing else it showed the conditions in the camps at the end of the war.

notes from a prior thread on this movie and the relevance of each camp to denier claims about the Holocaust: like Jeffk says, little about that


Thanks for the reminder, I forgot we discussed that earlier. I didn't have access to the documentary at that time.

. . . I mean Negative Capability, that is, when a man is capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason—Coleridge, for instance, would let go by a fine isolated verisimilitude caught from the Penetralium of mystery, from being incapable of remaining content with half-knowledge. - John Keats, 1817

LOL my thread seems to have gotten zero replies . . . I also thought it was interesting, although one can quibble with some of the data.

Well, I gave you credit.... :lol:

I got that in a tweet from the USHMM.

Yes, I've joined the 21st Century. I joined so I could watch Sergey do his demolition job. I now get info from the Auschwitz museum, among others.

Although I don't use it a lot, and most of my tweets come as 'autoposts' from another social media account of my team (from our Facebook page), and are in Greek of course, I follow Sergey, Nick Terry and a couple more, IIRC, so maybe you could follow, in order for me to be able to follow you back (and/or anybody else, of course).

I opened an account on Twitter when it began. I made three tweets. I closed my account.
