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

An Irrefutable Account Of The Atrocities Humans Are Capable Of
11 June 2020 | by CinemaClownSee all my reviews

Nazi Concentration Camps is the official documentary report that was compiled by the Allies and presented as evidence at the Nuremberg trials in order to expose the world to the unfathomable horrors that was perpetrated by the Nazis during their reign of terror. Traversing through numerous concentration camps, the film is a vital slice of human history that provides an irrefutable account of the atrocities that humans are capable of when driven by reckless hate.

Arranged into an hour long narrative that provides brief description of each camp its crew visits, the unedited footage of countless corpses & frail, skeletal survivors is heartbreaking & soul-shattering to watch. With extremism again on the rise and global tensions increasingly high, this evidential documentary continues to serve as a constant & cautionary reminder of what hatred can lead to, and why it is absolutely essential to destroy evil before it takes centerstage. A genuinely discomforting sit no doubt but it is by all means a mandatory viewing.
