Night And Fog

One of the most vivid depictions of the horrors of Nazi Concentration Camps. Filmed in 1955 at several concentration camps in Poland, the film combines new color and black and white footage with black and white newsreels, footage shot by the victorious allies, and stills, to tell the story not only of the camps, but to portray the horror of man’s brutal inhumanity.

  1. Actually, this is not the original movie.
    This is a remastered and re-edited 2003 release, in which:
    1. The original voice over and music score are gone and replaced by just another music score,
    2. The French policeman at ~ 2:50 is restored to the director’s original shot.
    This shot, was actually a point of big controversy between Alain Resnes and the French authorities back in 1955, because they didnt want to show any participation by the French occupation police, so they instructed Resnes to remove that shot. He edited the shot by adding an obstacle so no one could see the policeman’s cap and so the movie was granted release.
    Also, in my opinion, the original movie voice over and music score is far better than this one, more emotional, more to the point, more “connected” to the shots.

  2. I’m an old lady now, and I lost my father on D-day, fighting to stop this.. I have never been so proud of him, as I am now. I understand what he fought to end.

  3. I just watched this tonight on TCM. What a chilling account of the camps. It should be required viewing for every American citizen at this troubling time in American history. They walk among us, and we must cry out, “Never again!”

  4. Most Horrific Movie Ever Made

  5. if there is a must see film BEFORE graduating high school, this is the one. it should be REQUIRED viewing before one can get their diploma.

  6. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation
    but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    • Have you watched the film? It is bone-chilling, to say the least. You owe it to yourself to watch it, especially in light of what is happening at this moment in American history. Never again.
