‘Night Will Fall’Benny Royston
And fall it did, when British troops liberated Bergen-Belsen in Germany on 15 April 1945.
This documentary of the footage that was filmed at the time, how it was suppressed, and subsequently revisited in the 1980s makes difficult viewing.
no words to describe the #Holocaust horror being shown in #NightWillFall I applaud @Channel4 for showing this, many need to watch & learn.

Here in Bristol, we will be seeing it at The Watershed Cinema on Sunday April 19th, as part of our series of HMD-linked events. It will be introduced by Professor Tim Cole, historian from the University of Bristol.
