“Hitler's Madman” is the story of determined Czech resistance fighters trying to free their country from Nazi occupation. During an assassination attempt, they succeed in fatally wounding the region's governor, Reinhardt Heydrich (portrayed by John Carradine), who was also a key Nazi leader and architect of the Final Solution. As a result of his death, SS Chief Heinrich Himmler orders the Czech town of Lidice destroyed, with its men murdered and the women and children sent to concentration camps.

“Hitler's Madman” was an effective and timely reaction to the front page news headlines of its day. Heydrich's death occurred in June 1942, and the film was in theatres a year later.

Sponsored by the Israel Committee.
Pizza, pop, popcorn, and chips will be served.
