When Soviet troops liberated Auschwitz on January 27, 1945, a camera crew accompanied them to record the liberation process.

This powerful program incorporates the personal impressions of the cameraman, Alexander Woronzow, with his haunting footage. The camera documents the fearful faces of Auschwitz survivors, who didn’t know the Soviets were their liberators. The commentary describes the selection process which sent some inmates to work while others went to their deaths, horrific medical experiments, and daily life within Auschwitz. Warning: not recommended for unprepared audiences due to the intensely graphic presentation of atrocities.

Quantities are limited.
