HBO2 will air a newly restored version of acclaimed filmmaker Marcel Ophüls’ 1976 documentary, THE MEMORY OF JUSTICE, on Holocaust Remembrance Day (Monday, April 24). The rarely-seen, four-and-one-half hour epic was restored by the Academy Film Archive in association with Paramount Pictures and The Film Foundation, with restoration funding provided by The Material World Charitable Foundation, Righteous Persons Foundation and The Film Foundation. This HBO2 presentation marks the world television premiere of the restored version.

Filmmaker Marcel Ophüls explores the relationship between individual and collective responsibility in this documentary inspired by Nuremberg and Vietnam: An American Tragedy, written by Telford Taylor during the Vietnam War and reflecting on issues raised during his work as Chief Counsel for the Prosecution at the Nuremberg Trials. Ophüls investigates atrocities committed by the Nazis, in light of alleged war crimes committed by the French in Algeria and the Americans in Vietnam. Expert interviews and rare archival footage offer insight from both the architects and victims of evil. This monumental film raises essential questions about the moral choices made by individuals and governments and, in the words of Telford Taylor, “the degeneration of standards under the pressure of war.”
