Hitler’s Forgotten Victims

image

At a time when the fight for justice for Jewish victims of the Holocaust continues to make front-page news, Hitler’s Forgotten Victims reveals the hidden history of the 20,000 black and mixed-race people living in Nazi Germany. Using previously unseen European and American footage, this film tells the brutal story of sterilisation, medical experimentation, torture and extermination in Nazi concentration camps. The treatment of black victims during the Holocaust has remained unacknowledged by successive German governments, and compensation claims by relatives have been refused. This moving film finally allows the remaining survivors to tell their story.
