Using remarkable, recently discovered archive footage and testimony from both survivors and liberators, this film tells of the efforts made to document the almost unbelievable scenes that the Allies encountered on liberation. The film explores how a team of top filmmakers, including Sidney Bernstein, Richard Crossman and Alfred Hitchcock, came together to make a film to provide undeniable evidence of what the Allies found. However, due to emerging Cold War politics, the film was stopped in its tracks by the British Government and only now 70 years on, has it been completed. This film explains and contextualizes images previously seen, but not fully understood.
