The year is 1939. The masses give a Nazi salute, enthralled by speeches demanding loyalty to the Motherland, spreading hatred and xenophobia. But this is not Nazi Germany—this is New York City. On the eve of a world war, 22 thousand people rally in Madison Square Garden to celebrate the Nazis’ rise to power. Only one man refuses to celebrate. Marshall Curry salvaged the archive footage Americans would prefer to forget.
