Memorandum is a one-hour 1965 documentary co-directed by Donald Brittain and John Spotton, following Bernard Laufer, a Jewish Holocaust survivor, on an emotional pilgrimage back to the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. Produced by John Kemeny for the National Film Board of Canada, the film received several awards including a Golden Gate Award from the San Francisco International Film Festival. Considered by many critics to be Brittain's finest work, the film's title refers to Hitler's memorandum about the "final solution."
