The Gift Of The Town: Terezin transit camp Nazi propaganda film

"In response to growing international awareness of Nazi atrocities, the Nazis decided to allow a Red Cross investigation committee to visit the Theresienstadt ghetto in Czechoslovakia [in August-September 1944]. Elaborate measures were taken to disguise conditions in the ghetto and to portray an atmosphere of normalcy."

(United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Washington, DC)
