Storyline

This Granada documentary, first broadcast in 1985, showed some never before footage taken by allied cameramen and film-makers when they entered Nazi Concentration Camps in 1945. The original footage was suppressed for almost forty years because the Allies felt it was better to purue cordial relationships with the German people rather than rubbing the horrors of Hitler's "Final Solution" into their noses.

The most damning of them all
2 October 2004 | by penguin2212See all my reviews

This is the story of a film that never was. A documentary designed to show the German people the real disgrace and barbarity of their Final Solution, a film that was eventually pulled for political expediency.

It contains some of the most horrific and soul searching scenes one will ever see, some beyond imagination.This is perhaps the most powerful and damning record of what went on in the concentration camps of the Third Reich and requires a strong stomach. It should be seen by anyone who has the slightest doubts about the veracity of the Holocaust. The photography is graphic and the commentary and personal accounts do the subject matter full justice. See it if you can.
