Storyline

This is the only film known to be made by the Nazis inside an operating concentration camp. Germany's Ministry of Propaganda produced this 1944 film about Theresienstadt, the "model" ghetto established by the Nazis in 1941 in Terezin, a town in the former Czechoslovakia. Joseph Goebbels intended to use the film to prove to the International Red Cross and the world that Jews were being well-treated in the camps. The film, however, is an elaborately staged hoax presenting a completely false picture of camp life. Upon completion, the director and most of the cast of prisoners were shipped to Auschwitz. Only a few survived to attest to the falsity of the film. Includes study guide. Written by National Center for Jewish Film

Propaganda Movie
15 January 2002 | by (Braunschweig, Germany) – See all my reviews

This Movie is a bad movie of Propaganda , full with lies . It should show the lives of the jews in the KZ's - Konzentrationslagern / Concentraition-Camps ) and if you ever seen a KZ , espspecially Theresienenstadt , you would see the cruel actions of the Nazis.
