Storyline

This film is the official documentary report compiled from over 80,000 feet of film shot by Allied military photographers in the German concentration camps immediately after liberation. The footage is a camp-by-camp record taken in order to provide lasting objective proof of the horrors the liberators witnessed. Some emphasis is also placed on the humanitarian work done in the camps by the liberators. Remarkably, the narration refers to the camp victims according to their country of origin only, and no mention of Jews is made. Written by National Center for Jewish Film

Shocking Footage Of WW2 Nazi Concentration Camps
24 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

I found this documentary was excellent because it succeeded in its goals and provides great footage to learn from or show for educational purposes. I didn't learn all that much that I didn't already know but it gave a different view of events that you don't often see. After the Holocaust, American soldiers go to a concentration camp to gather evidence. The footage is shocking. The camp has not been touched since the Nazis have been defeated and there are some people who are still alive and tons of dead bodies. The people who survived looked so sick. They were starved and ill and grateful to receive help.

The victims show beatings and cigarette burns that were given to them by the Nazis. This documentary definitely serves its purpose which is to provide evidence of the atrocities and brutalities committed by the Nazi regime and its officers. The documentary takes you through multiple concentration camps around Europe and therefore this footage is sufficient as evidence and to provide insight into the Holocaust.
