But their most important contribution to history was their work in the U.S. Armed Forces and Secret Services, filming the realities of war and the liberation of Nazi concentration camps. Their documentation provides an essential visual record of WWII. Filming the Camps presents rare footage of the liberation of Dachau with detailed directors' notes, narratives describing burials at Falkenau, and the documentary produced as evidence at the Nuremberg trials, among other historic material. Now, for the first time in the U.S., this material is being made available to a general audience. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=106585 Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust
