New USHMM Film "The Path to Nazi Genocide"


The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has produced a short film titled "The Path to Nazi Genocide." 

This resource examines the Nazis’ rise and consolidation of power in Germany, explores their ideology, propaganda, and persecution of Jews and other innocent civilians. Using rarely seen and amateur footage and Museum collections, the film outlines the path by which the Nazis led a state to war and, with their collaborators, killed millions -- including systematically murdering 6 million Jewish people. Providing a concise overview of the Holocaust and those involved, this resource is intended to provoke reflection and discussion about the role of ordinary people, institutions, and nations between 1918 and 1945. 

In cooperation with the United Nations, the film is available in the six official UN languages, including Arabic, and the UN is providing DVDs of the film to their information offices in 63 countries. You can also access the film via Youtube at The Path to Nazi Genocide.
