The eye-opening short documentary featuring illuminating animation, Camp Confidential: America’s Secret Nazis, co-directed by Daniel Sivan and Mor Loushy (The Devil Next Door, The Oslo Diaries) and produced by Benji and Jono Bergmann (Wirecard, Mau), focuses on the story of a top secret POW camp that was classified for over five decades. In the midst of WWII, a group of young Jewish refugees are assigned to guard a top secret POW camp near Washington D.C. The Jewish soldiers soon discover that their prisoners are no other than Hitler’s top scientists – What starts out as an intelligence mission to gather information from the Nazis, soon gets a shocking twist when the Jewish soldiers are tasked with a very different mission altogether. A mission that would question their moral values – exposing a dark secret from America’s past. Co-director Daniel Sivan (Mor Loushy) joins us for a conversation on this unbelievable true story of Nazi officers and scientists a few miles the the US Capital and the wildly improbable discovery of finding the survivors who were alive to tell the tale.
