The Liberation of Death Camps (2005)|
Allied Soldiers remember
Author: Torsten Halsey
Only a few weeks before the end of the war, hundreds of young allied soldiers were confronted with the world of horror of the national socialist death camps totally unprepared. On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp, January 27th, 2005, this film describes the liberation of several concentration camps from the viewpoint of selected former American, British and Soviet soldiers – the horror, the misery, the anger, the first reactions but also the attempts to help and to punish the perpetrators. And this film also shows how hard life was after the liberation for the soldiers. Because they could never forget what they saw back them.
