Auschwitz: The Nazi and the final solution : Episode 1 : Surprising Beginnings (2005) 50 min.

Synopsis

Auschwitz was the site of the largest mass murder the world has ever seen. This landmark, 6-part series charts the evolution of the camp and the mentality of the perpetrators, and shows how the place related to the Nazis overall campaign of extermination. Written and produced by award-winning filmmaker Laurence Rees, and using new research, the series offers a unique perspective on the camp in which more than one million people were ruthlessly murdered. The first episode, "Surprising Beginnings", tells of the camp's early days and how it was originally intended for a very different purpose than the murder of the Jews.
