A Film Unfinished was originally meant to have been a propaganda documentary filmed by the Nazi s in the Warsaw Ghetto, showing rich Jews exploiting their poorer neighbours and offering some justification for the Final Solution. But in 1998 evidence appeared that much of the film was staged. Yael Heronski has reconstructed the footage, which is accompanied by the testimonies of six survivors who survived the Ghetto. The result is a fascinating example of how history can be manipulated beyond recognition and a powerful reminder of the scale of the Nazi propaganda machine.
