Trivia

Originally shot in 1945, the project took longer than expected to complete and eventually five of the film's six reels were left in the Imperial War Museum and forgotten. The footage was discovered years later and shown in an incomplete version at the Berlin Film Festival in 1984 and then broadcast on American PBS in 1985 under the title Frontline: Memory of the Camps (1985).

What one man can do to another
23 April 2017 | by rogues-25519See all my reviews

70 years on and not a day goes past that I do not give a thought for the horror and sheer misery the individuals ripped from their lives and thrown into the hell that was the concentration camps. How did this happen? The images shown in this documentary should be shown to every child in every school across the globe. This way something like this might never happen again. Sadly I feel that this is nothing short of a pipe dream as we humans have a tenancy to forget history to attempt to make new history which inevitably makes the past look like child's play. For all humans sake inhumane treatment of our fellow man should never be this barbaric ever again. My thoughts are that the quote that by gods grace we will learn is nothing more than lip service as a species domination is all some want and strive for. Those of us who strive for peace and fairness for all need to always aware for the next maniacal leader capable of such horror and end their reign before it gets started.
