View a new Museum film providing a concise overview of the Holocaust and
what made it possible. Using rare footage, the film examines the Nazis'
rise and consolidation of power in Germany as well as their racist
ideology, propaganda, and persecution of Jews and other innocent
civilians. It also outlines the path by which the Nazis led a state to
war, and with their collaborators, killed millions -- including
systematically murdering 6 million Jewish people. This 38-minute
resource is intended to provoke reflection and discussion about the role
of ordinary people, institutions, and nations between 1918 and 1945.
