Newsreel and other documentary film stock footage from numerous institutions have contributed to this unique archive. It was not only a historic responsibility but a moral obligation which led to this undertaking. This release presents the footage that was used by the Russians as prosecution evidence at the Nuremburg War Crime Trials.
Featuring footage--much of which has never been seen in the West--that was used to indict the Nazis during the Nuremburg trials, this shocking documentary records the liberation of Auschwitz, the notorious Nazi concentration camp. Shot by Russian filmmaker Captain Alexander Vrotsos, the film provides a horrific record of the brutality that was wreaked upon the Jews there. It also documents the desperation and sadness of the over 6000 prisoners who survived, the courage of the liberators of the camp, and the terrible evidence of torture and death that awaited them there when they arrived in 1945. Though it is a painful film to watch, HOLOCAUST is an important record of this terrible time in history, and works to raise consciousness in the hope that it will never happen again.
