Filming the Camps: from Hollywood to Nuremberg

Filming the Camps: from Hollywood to Nuremberg
July 20, 2018 paperlesslion

Explore the importance of cinema in documenting genocide and the horrors of war — and in the re-establishment of justice — when the Holocaust Memorial Center presents Filming the Camps: from Hollywood to Nuremberg. The new exhibit opens Thursday and is on view through Dec. 30, 2018.

Directors John Ford, Samuel Fuller and George Stevens created classics like The Grapes of Wrath, Shane and The Big Red One. They also filmed the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps. This powerful exhibit explores these filmmakers’ experiences during and after WWII, their confrontation with Nazi atrocities, and the mark it left on them as artists.

The exhibition, curated by historian and film director Christian Delage, was designed, created, and distributed by the Mémorial de la Shoah (Paris, France), and made possible through the generous support of SNCF.

The exhibit is open Sunday through Friday and is free with museum admission or membership. The exhibit is recommended for ages 12 and older.
