Storyline

In 1945, camera crews went with the American and British armies in the nazis death camps and filmed the horror they found there. A group of directors among whom was Alfred Hichcock developed a script to present these horrors and be sure that people remember. Forty-eight years later it came out from the cave of the Imperial War Museum and was edited as forecast. Written by Jean-Marie Berthiaume <jiembe@videotron.ca>

Quotes

Narrator: Auschwitz. The most up-to-date institution was better equipped for killing. Transports of prisoners from all over occupied Europe were went for extermination in one of the special Vernichtungslager. Here, 4 million people were murdered. As many men, women, and children as you could pack into a great city.

Wonderful
4 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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."
