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

Did You Know?


Filming the horrifying scenes of Dachau so traumatized Stevens that upon his return to Hollywood after the war he fell into a depressed state, not working and keeping himself apart from the industry. He did eventually return to directing, but completely left behind his prior style as a great comedic director and helmed only serious movies for the rest of his career. See more »

When humanity is put aside...
28 February 2018 | by silociceroSee all my reviews

This should be shown to every person who ever claims that the Holocaust didn't really happen. Even though we have all seen snippets of this through the years, the impact of the full film is undeniable. I hope it is always kept available for free viewing. Each generation needs to be made aware of the atrocities of which human beings are capable.
