    The Holocaust film that was too shocking to show

    In 1945, overseen by Alfred Hitchcock, a crack team of British film-makers went to Germany to document the horror of the concentration camps. Despite being hailed as a masterpiece, the film was never shown. Now, in a documentary called Night Will Fall, the full story of its creation and suppression is being told

    I don't think I can watch this. I saw clips from it and it upset me for days. I think watching the entire thing would traumatize me for life.

    It's good to put it out there. I've noticed holocaust deniers who need to be reminded for life.
