Event Details

Hitler used cinema as a propaganda machine, portraying Jews as a collective threat to humanity and then spreading these falsehoods throughout Germany. In response, some of Hollywood’s top, Academy Award-winning filmmakers (William Wyler, Billy Wilder & more) decided to make documentaries of their own, films that would expose the regime’s true atrocities. This meticulously crafted WWII documentary reminds us of just how powerful a tool cinema can be and that whoever holds the camera matters.

HOLLYWOOD AND WORLD WAR II will premiere the week of International Holocaust Remembrance Day beginning Monday, January 25, 7 PM EST and will stream for 48 hours.


25 (Monday) 7:00 pm - 27 (Wednesday) 7:00 pm
