Storyline

In 1945, camera crews went with the American and British armies in the nazis death camps and filmed the horror they found there.

Quotes

Narrator: Here Schoker, the camp commandant, said, "I want at least 600 Jewish deaths reported in the camp office every day." Thugs were appointed as overseers or block leaders.

Scenes of the horrors of the Holocaust
24 January 2006 | by (PORTLAND, OREGON) – See all my reviews

From the time my family emigrated to the US, in 1956, my life has been affected (being called a Nazi) by what is shown in the footage you will see. Many years ago, I began to look into the Holocaust, and this piece gives dramatic testimony to what was discovered by those who liberated the death camps. Detractors and deniers of these atrocities: YOU NEED TO WATCH THIS VIDEO! Many of the camps throughout Germany and Poland are shown and especially Dachau where thousands upon thousands are buried in mass graves. It is very gripping stuff and quite graphic. There are many scenes which show the dead and dying lying scattered throughout the camp. Local volunteers and SS soldiers are shown throwing decaying bodies into pits. Despite its' gruesomeness it is worthy of the time spent and if we have to have a reason to discourage what leads to war, this is one.
