Auschwitz: The Nazi and the final solution : Episode 3 : Factories of Death (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 third episode, "Factories of Death", looks at the increasing efficiency of the exterminations at Auschwitz and Treblinka, and the widening field of capture for Jews, including France and the British Channel Islands.
