A Film and a Context: The Terezín Film of 1944 and Hippler’s Der ewige Jude

The paper gives the Terezín film of 1944 a filmic context by comparing it with Fritz Hippler’s propaganda film Der ewige Jude (1940).  Issues such as the “reversal” of Nazi attitude to Jews, especially in the context of visual representation of work, are discussed, and some speculations about the “audience” of the Terezín film are added.
