Part Four, Factory of Murder, focuses on 1942, as the flames of madness consume Europe. Day and night, the death trains leave German towns. The broad masses realize the truth, but stay silent. At auctions, they buy up what Jewish possessions remain. One evening at a dinner reception of dignitaries, Himmler drinks wine, smokes cigars and boasts of the murdering. This year, the world will learn of the mass killings, but it will take six months before the Western allies issue a statement: Those responsible will not escape without punishment.
