We've showed you photos of the horrible American Nazi Rally that took place in Madison Square Garden in 1939 before, but this new mini-documentary film from Marshall Curry of Field_of_Vision shows several minutes worth of vintage footage. The shocking footage shows both the rally, and the public backlash outside of the venue. Nearly 22,000 Nazi scumbags attended, while over 80,000 protested outside.

In 1939, New York's Madison Square Garden was host to an enormous—and shocking—gathering of 22,000 Americans that has largely been forgotten from our history.
