NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE. Between 1933 and 1945, Germany’s Third Reich produced more than 1,200 feature films, many of which were blatant Nazi propaganda. A handful were noxious antisemitic films. Today, forty of the Reich’s propaganda films remain banned from public exhibition in Germany due to their incendiary content. Forbidden Films includes clips from many of these rarely-seen films and asks fraught questions about why, and under what conditions, these films should be made available to the public.
Post Film Discussion: Sharon Pucker Rivo & Lisa Rivo, NCJF Directors in conversation with Ann Millin, historian and curator at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. The National Center for Jewish Film is the official archive repository for Nazi propaganda films in the United States.
