Anti-nazi Film Defended in Canadian Parliament by State Secretary

State Secretary Judy Lamarsh defended in the House of Commons a National Film Board production, “Memorandum” dealing with atrocities against Jews committed in the Nazi death camps during the war.

Miss Lamarsh spoke in response to objections to the film voiced by Raymond Langloi: a member of Parliament, who said he was unable to “comprehend or support” the film. Mi Lamarsh said the film had won four film festival prizes and had been hailed by a Montreal critic as “philosophy on film.”
