Death Mills DVD
The first comprehensive film documentary on the Holocaust, Death Mills was made to be shown to German audiences during the Allied de-nazification campaigns of 1946-48. Combining footage from Soviet and Polish as well as American sources, the film makes a forceful argument for German guilt in committing unprecedented crimes against humanity.
As the immediate postwar period gave way to the Cold War, and American policy towards Germany softened, American occupation authorities pulled the film from German distribution; the English-language version here was subsequently used to inform American policy-making back home.
U.S. War Department (Signal Corps) production, 1946, B&W, 22 minutes.
