German Concentration Camps Factual Survey: Special Archival Edition

Synopsis
This is the first ever DVD / Blu-ray release of Imperial War Museum’s German Concentration Camps Factual Survey. This hugely important film documents the liberation of Belsen and other concentration camp by Allied forces in Spring 1945. The production was originally shelved by the Ministry of Information in 1945, before being restored and completed by IWM in 2014. This special archival edition has been produced in collaboration with the IWM and contains the museum’s restoration, plus substantial extra features and some previously unseen footage that help to contextualise the film, together with a perfect-bound book and commentary.
