This should never be forgotten.By a customer , 14 Jul 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]I think its a tragedy that children today all over the world do not know what happened during the second World War and this film proves it. More docu films like this should be made and they should be made compulsory viewing at schools. I was told by my father and grandfather (who is from Krakow) what happened in those camps, including the camp my grandfather was in.
If you watch this then please ask your children to watch it with you then they will understand and realise the horrors of what those poor people went through because if we dont tell our children then this will be forgotten and it should NEVER be forgotten.

An eye-opening documentary about the Holocaust and the ignorance of young people today.By a customer , 31 May 2013I, too, agree about the subtitles, they don't say exactly what the teens were saying. The Holocaust should be required learning in all school curricula. It is especially important as the generation that survived the camps, and who were eye-witnesses to it will soon be gone. The re-enactments give us some idea as to the attitude of the National Socialists who ran the camps. For them it was just another day's work. They believed that all Jews were vermin so for them the death camps were simply the most efficient way of destroying vermin. This documentary should be watched by all High Schoolers and hopefully we can educate coming generations about how easily people can be persuaded to hate people enough to agree to genocide.
It happened in the 16th century?By Loopgrinder (132 reviews) , 22 May 2013I recently watched 'Rampage' which was my first introduction to Uwe Boll's movies and I enjoyed it. So I thought I would give this one a go too. And I'm glad I did. Dark, grim, bleak and uncompromising, Auschwitz is all of these - as it should be given the subject matter. As the director himself explains, there have been too many movies made about this horrific time in history where the morbid reality is glossed over with a tale of heroism. Not so here. The 'film' itself is only about 30 minutes long, sandwiched between a questions and answers session with modern day German school kids, and takes the form of a reconstruction of the gas chambers. The most important detail is the focus upon the perpetrators and their casual, matter of fact 'it's a dirty job but someone's gotta do it' attitude to infanticide and mass murder. Granted, there seems like too much time spent on the interviews but it does add an important perspective.

Badly Subtitled!!By a customer , 27 Apr 2013This is an interesting documentary but the subtitles are very poor which is extremely irritating! A person can be talking for several minutes and the subtitle given will be 5 words long! Only watch if you understand German.
