German Concentration Camps Factual Survey

During World War II, filmmaker Sidney Bernstein was working with the British Army and the Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force (SHAEF). For five months in 1945 his orders were to film the liberation of Bergen-Belsen, to collect the footage shot by the Allied Forces and to create a documentary. The film would show the German people what had been done by Hitler and the Third Reich. But German Concentration Camps Factual Survey wasn’t finally completed for 70 years.



3 Generations, a non-profit documentary film company, was founded to document and raise awareness of the genocide in Darfur: the first genocide of the 21st century. In 2005, we visited Sudan and Chad to collect testimonies. This evolved into the award-winning feature documentary, The Devil Came on Horseback. Since then, our agenda has expanded to include the stories of survivors of genocides in Armenia, Cambodia, Rwanda, the Holocaust, Tibet, and more recently Myanmar and Iraq.
