As a person fascinated with WWII and the horrors of German expansion, I found this film to be one of the most moving things I have ever seen in my entire life. The images are graphic and telling, just how they should be. For a person, who like me, wants to learn about history from those who experienced it, this is one way, as the images draw you into the horror. This film brings ferocious truth to the concentration camps. This film exhibits the non-human nature of the SS guards, the cruelty, and at the end the desperation of those who committed such atrocity. This period of history is something that should never be forgotten. As a famous writer once said, "Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely."
