Auschwitz was one of the most infamous of the Nazi Death camps. Through a combination of survivors’ interviews, and historical re-enactments, this six-part series tells the story of how the Nazis attempted to exterminate the Jewish people during World War II.
The Nazis called this act of genocide the Final Solution. The aftermath of what would come to be called the Holocaust is explored in this BBC documentary that seeks to gain historical perspective, by focusing in on what happened at Auschwitz. The statements of the survivors are used to create the historical re-enactments of what actually happened there during World War II.
This documentary uses some never before collected interviews, and contemporary coloured monochrome film from the archives. Old buildings that have long been demolished are reconstructed in computer generated reconstructions. These computer-generated reconstructions are paired with modern day sites around the area of the site of the Auschwitz camps.
