Blood Libels through the Generations

1975 | 10 minutes

This short film presents, through pictures and images, the blood libels that European Jews were accused of through the generations: in the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, in Nazi Germany, to the latest blood libel propagated in Poland by the Communist government. Greenberg makes exceptional use of the combination of film and painting. This film also includes found footage sequences from The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928) by Danish director Carl Theodor Dreyer.
