THE HOLOCAUST





This chapter begins with the plans for elimination of the ‘biologically weak’ and ‘racially impure’ elements in German society. A map of deportation routes and a detailed plan of Auschwitz-Birkenau give weight to the calculated precision of the ‘Final Solution’ of the so-called ‘Jewish Question’. Rare documentary film footage provides disturbing but powerful proof of the horrors of the Holocaust. Also included in this section is a country by country account of the fate of the Jews. Each main chapter provides a moving and thoughtful summary of the topic in the form of a narrated video-montage.
