The Soviet silent chronicle made during the Second World War is among the first documentary evidences of the Holocaust. However in the Soviet sources, such movies had never been associated with mass murder of the Jews while in Western sources, they used to be totally ignored until recently.


How did that happen and why does the work of the Soviet documentalists remain relevant after 70 years since the victory in the war?
