In 2018, HERC begins its fourth movie series asking the question, “What did Americans know about the racism and horrors of the NAZI threat before and during WWII?” We’ll continue to explore what has become quite obvious to our filmgoers – that what Americans knew about the discriminatory policies of the Nazis, the denial of free speech and religion, and the existence of brutal concentration camps inside Germany was quite extensive.
In 1943, one year after Czechoslovakian partisans had assassinated the brutal Nazi Reinhard Heydrich, MGM released “Hitler’s Madman”. This film gives a dramatic interpretation of the difficulties and horrors of the Czech occupation under Heydrich and the widespread reprisals, destruction, and murders ordered by Hitler after his death.
