Deadly Deception, A

Item Number:
50 min.

This one-hour documentary will explore how the greatest and most insidious hoax in human history came about and show to what extent it may have contributed to the genocide of the Holocaust. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion are a complete fabrication, created by a secret servant for Tsarist Russia and intended only to be a tool of disinformation designed to influence a single individual -- the Tsar. But it became public property after its publication and during the decades before World War II it grew to be one of the most popular books in history, rivaling the Bible as a publishing phenomena. Its influence spread beyond Europe to America, the Middle and Far East. It has been singled out as a causative factor in the genocide of the Holocaust -- and it still attracts believers today. As we trace the genesis and evolution of the Protocols across the span of the Twentieth Century, the arc of the story will follow the rise and decline of the influence of the Protocols. Along the way we will focus on the stories of individuals whose lives were defined by their relationship with the Protocols: The secret agent in 1890's Paris who created the Protocols: the brave indviduals who struggled against the lies and distrotions of the forgery (such as the German Journalist and scholar Benjamin Segel) in a vain attempt to reveal it as a hoax: those who used the Protocols to extend their influence and manipulate others (Hitler, Streicher, Goebbels, Henry Ford); and, finally their victims, numbering in the millions.
