BOOTLEG FILES: 005

Film: “The Eternal Jew” (the infamous 1940 Nazi propaganda tract designed to justify the anti-Semitic edicts in occupied Europe).

Last seen: very rare public screening in New York in October 2002 on a double bill with the elegiac Holocaust documentary “Night and Fog.”

American home video release: never commercially released.

Reason for disappearance: its miserable exhortation of anti-Jewish sentiment has no value to civilized society.

Chances of seeing it on home video/DVD: are you kidding?

Bootleg video opportunities: bootlegs of the German-language version (without English subtitles) are easy enough to locate; a version with a bombastic English narration is on the market, but it requires some patience to track down.
