The only Hollywood film made during World War II to depict the events later known as the Holocaust, None Shall Escape was released in January 1944 and powerfully imagines a postwar reckoning in which a United Nations Tribunal charges a Nazi war criminal with the murder of Polish Jews. Directed by Hungarian émigré Andre de Toth, shot by ace cinematographer Lee Garmes, scripted by Lester Cole, a future member of the Blacklisted Hollywood Ten, and starring Marsha Hunt and Alexander Knox, future members of the Committee for the First Amendment.
