Scenes from the Warsaw Ghetto Staged to Imperfection

  • Aired: 05/03/2011
  • 01:15
  • Rating: TV-PG
A survivor recounts his participation in a staged scene from an infamous work of Nazi propaganda -- "The Ghetto" -- that depicts rabbis and petitioners visiting a bureau where their grievances are cordially heard amidst a number of dubiously placed props -- including a large, lit menorah -- put there by the filmmakers who believed it would lend authenticity to the scene.
