Auschwitz: Nazis And The Final Solution
Special Features


'Forgotten Witness' documentary (30 mins)
Interview with series producer Laurence Rees
Review


Auschwitz: the site of the largest mass murder in the history of the world. However, few know the true and surprising history of this most infamous place, nor how it fitted into the Nazis' overall plan for the mass extermination of the Jews, what was termed 'Final Solution'. For Auschwitz, via its destructive dynamism, became both a microcosm of the Nazi State and the logical consequence of Hitler's warped view of the world.

Combining rare archive footage, CGI illustrations of the camp and dramatic reconstructions of the key decision-making moments, here unfolds the story of Auschwitz and the horrific ideology behind it.

I just got back last week - very creepy place, especially Auschwitz II - it's hard to picture that your standing where thousands of others stood and marched to their deaths

I agree Birkenau is much harder hitting than Auschwitz.
Interesting series as well.

As Auschwitz was more of a museum it took the edge off but still creepy seeing the "halt stoj!" signs and barb wire.

Visited Auschwitz last year after watching this on TV previously but now read the book and watched the DVDs and recommend them 100%, a dark part of human history that is both disturbing and fascinating.

literally the best holocaust film! a must see and a must have at this price. heat added.

Having spent time in Israel (and as a result I've been exposed to a lot of "Jewish" feedback) I do always wonder why they never seem to give much mention to the fate of the other peoples that were processed in the camps...gypsies, homosexuals, disabled, trade unionists etc etc...one would think the Nazis only killed Jews...not to mention the 28 million (or so) folks that died in WW2.

Before anybody wants to brand me as "anti-semitic" etc., I'm not - just simply pointing out a general observation. :thumbsup:

For what it is worth, my great uncle took part in the liberation of Belsen Bergen - which actually resulted in a personal tour for me of the old Holocaust museam in Jerusalem, when it was actually closed for the day ;-)

I was based in Bergen during my Army years and some of the legends you hear about these places simply isn't true - no birds singing etc...

A shocking period in history none the less and we never really seem to learn from it!

Too much money to be made you see...:whistling:

Well the memorial at Birkenhau does say "For ever let this place be a cry of despair and a warning to humanity where the Nazis murdered about one and and half million men, women and children mainly Jews from various countries in Europe"

The deaths counts of the other inmates is tiny compared to the Jewish deaths although I do agree that many people do forget about the others that perished (after visiting Auschwitz I didn't realise they tested Zyklon B on Soviet POW s first)

"Auschwitz: the site of the largest mass murder in the history of the world"

I find that extremely hard to believe. There have surely been larger mass murders?

I'm not looking to be controversial. It was a terrible atrocity of a huge magnitude but I don't believe that, in all of human history, this has been the biggest example of mass murder.

Indeed..

Communists and Stalin: It is calculated that the Communist regime, 1917-1987, murdered about 62 million people, around 55 million of them citizens.

but, the number 1 in the shortest amount of time is;

Mao Tse Tung: During the years 1958 and 1959, China experienced what was hailed by Marxists as the "Great Leap Forward." During this time, Mao Tse Tung's regime was directly responsible for between 30 and 40 million deaths.

By comparison, the Holocaust saw 9-11 million people dead a result of Hitler and the Nazis.

I think what this refers to is that all of these people were murdered in one (geographical) place - the examples you give refer to the totals of people murdered by the various regimes quoted - it has nothng to do with total numbers or time periods.

In 1258 the Mongols are said to have killed up to a million in Baghdad after the end of the siege.

Yet it seems strange that even though the Jewish people went through horrendous times in the not so distant past, Palestine and the Gaza situation is something they seem to be totally detached from.

On the one hand they rightly say the crimes commited by the nazis against the Jewish people were something not to ever happen again yet they become blind to what their own leaders are doing to the Palestinians.

Indeed,if Israel cannot learn lessons from something that happened to them not so long ago,then what hope is there.

apparently,so ive read, that they killed so many people that the roads and streets were flowing with the blood of the people they had killed,literally.

This is not easy viewing and the haunting music from Gretske realy adds to the programme, b4 this aired few ppl had heard of Gretske he is a polish composer who wrote the music after visiting the camps

it is a must but for all kids doing WW2 in history, if u r a teacher this would be a good buy at any price

Perhaps I've missed something here but I'm not aware of any concentration camps, death camps, forced death marches, attempted systematic annihilation of an entire people, official state policy of genocide etc etc going on in Israel/Gaza, so what exactly is the comparison between the two situations?

Yes, you may justifiably be unhappy with the current situation in the middle east but to bring in comparisons to the Holocaust is frankly ludicrous as well as being offensive to those who suffered and/or lost family members in the Holocaust.

i think this is the one they show in the history channel all the time. if it is, its really good.

It's more to do with the way Nazis saw the Jews and treated them as if they weren't human.
Also stripping them down as if they were material rather than living beings, i.e. their possessions were taken, their hair used as furniture stuffing, gold teeth taken, their bodies broken down through labour to be then cremated and their ashes used to fertilise land.
There are many other mass murders in history which saw more victims but the Holocaust stands out because of its incomprehensible cruelty.

Auschwitz/Birkenau was bleak to say the least.

You've been to Gaza have you??

The comparison is how can one people who were treated so badly not so long ago treat others in a similar way and yet be not affected.

Did I mention concentration camps?did I mention forced marches?

Am I downplaying the holocaust?

They may not be killing them through concentration camps but they are using other methods such as starving the population,denying them basic medical aid,systematically forcing the Palestinians from their homes.

Just how some of you guys have been to Auschwitz,make a trip to Gaza and see how they're living.

And the irony of this is that (from what I understand) Communism/Marxism was initially promoted by Jews which resulted in the deaths of even greater numbers of innocent people, especially by comparision to the National Socialists.

Even more ironic, the Jews were eventually targetted by the Communists as well - i.e. they created the monster.

I've been told by people from Eastern Europe that one of the main reasons they tend to be "anti-semitic" is because they blame the Jews for communism.

My own philosophy is to treat others as you wish to be treated yourself :thumbsup:

I've been down to the wire around Gaza - it doesn't look like a pretty sight to be honest. Folks I know who went into Gaza described it as the "wild west". :oops:

The situation in Israel is more complex than what is being described here.

I believe if Arafat wanted to make Israel the land of the Palestinians he would have told them to go "forth and multiply" - and by today they would probably have been the majority people in Israel and taken the country...but there is no money in that is there? :whistling:

I'd honestly say that 95% of Israelis (I met) want peace and want the Palestinians to be happy but as long as both sides have their own agendas, it's not realistic to expect that any time soon.

I really don't have the time to debate this and nor is this an appropriate forum to do so.

While I am not condoning the ill-treatment of the Palestinians in the ways you mention, I am afraid there is still no comparison to be made between their suffering and the (partially successful) attempt by one nation systematically and scientifically to eradicate another from the face of this earth.

I do not intend to comment further so please do not take my silence as agreement to any further points you make on this subject.

And history tells us that it was the British who created the first concentration camps during the Boer War. They are also partially to blame for the Palestinian situation too. If that is a fact, tell me, am I lying?

I was unaware and somewhat ignorant to what happend in that dark chapter of man kinds history, it shows what if unchallenged mankind is capable of,

This series even brought a tear to my eyes at times! I found the music was perfect for the series too!
