Ephemeral Films: National Socialism in Austria Project Film Collection

Film Collection | Accession Number: 2011.461
Collection Summary
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Austrian Film Museum, and the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute collaborated in the Ephemeral Films: National Socialism in Austria, a project to fully digitize and annotate unique collections of ephemeral films from the Nazi period in Austria.The fifty films analyzed in this Austrian Future Fund project include unofficial images that depict vibrant prewar Jewish life in Austria, the turmoil of the Nazis taking power, and the persecution of Jews after the Anschluss, including films shot by Americans. Ephemeral films are films with a limited purpose—not meant to endure—and include amateur, institutional, industrial, and educational films. Such films often supplement and sometimes contradict the official, Nazi-sponsored version of events and serve as an important corrective to the visual record. Each film was scanned frame-by-frame and is digitally linked to annotations including photographs, geographic locations, and other metadata that synchronously change as the film plays. Visit efilms.ushmm.org. This curated collection includes the films featured in the project that belong to sources other than USHMM.
