Made in Stalin’s Russia, Professor Mamlock was one of the first films worldwide to tackle Nazi anti-Semi- tism head-on. Based on a famous play by a German-Jewish exile to Moscow, Friedrich Wolf, and directed by an Austrian-Jewish exile, Herbert Rappaport, the film tells with brutal honesty the story of a Jewish doctor and his family as he becomes a victim of the Nazis’ rise to power in 1930s Germany. Professor Mamlock is not only impressively acted but also beautifully shot—and was a hit with audiences both at home and abroad.

Daniel Panneton, of the Sarah and Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre, introduces this groundbreaking depiction of Nazi brutality and the excitement it caused when it first played in Toronto over 80 years ago.
