A SHADOW OF DOUBT

Netherlands, 1975 (MIFF 1977)

Director: Rolf Orthel

Historical facts about Westerbork, Auschwitz, and other concentration camps form the basis of an inquiry into how much people could know, and wished to know about 'what was going on in the East' during the war. The film also examines what was made of this knowledge during and after the war.
