Storyline

The "special commandos" were Jewish prisoners who were forced to operate the crematoria of the annihilation camps such as KZ Birkenau. The oral testimonies of very rare survivors and eyewitnesses, and readings from manuscripts, written and hidden by these Sonderkommandos before they were all killed and cremated, evoke in this movie the horrors of Nazi barbarity.
