‘How the Holocaust Began’ (2023), produced by Caravan for BBC Two and iPlayer, has been selected as a finalist in the Best Specialist Factual Programme at the Broadcast Awards 2024. The nomination acknowledges years of work by an unflagging team to produce a moving, insightful and important film.
In the film, historian James Bulgin reveals the origins of the Holocaust in the German invasion of the Soviet Union, exploring the mass murder, collaboration and experimentation that led to the Final Solution. It can currently be viewed on BBC iPlayer.
