Abstract
In 1945, Alfred Hitchcock got involved in the production of a documentary film, which later would be called Memory of the Camps. Although Hitchcock's involvement in the project was rather minimal, his contribution interfered in an interesting way with some of the aesthetic preoccupations that particularly characterized his feature films of the 1940s. How are some of these interests, such as the fascination for morbid details, the use of fetish objects and a preference for long takes, connected to the issues of memory, trauma, and (historical) truth?
