Prisoner of Paradise

Very standard documentary format doesn’t take away from the interest and oddness of this film, which presents the odd story of Theresienstadt, a Nazi concentration camp made out to look like an artists’ paradise. Prominent Jews were gathered there for photo-ops and propaganda pieces, and the setting was made to look less like a prison and more like a vacation home. The film especially follows Kurt Gerron, a Jewish prisoner who was forced to make a movie, "The Fuhrer Gives A City To The Jews," for propaganda purposes. Prisoners of Paradise is an interesting and largely untold tale of the weirder side of evil.
