I have seen this documentary, it's real & it does show new footage.
But here's the catch.
It's not about the new footage, rather it's about what the Narrator says, it one of those doublethink moments, just like when they talk about "Gas Chambers" & show you pictures of half burnt corpses in cremation ovens, 2 totally different things.
The only really memorable bit of footage I remember from the doco, is where German soldiers are shown giving Jews bread, at this point the narrator is "explaining" that the Germans are enticing Jews with food & the promise of better living conditions if they travel west (Poland), however the narrator at this point states that in reality the Jews are being fed straight into the murder mills.
In these sort of Films you can say what you want when A. the film is Silent or B. the sound has deliberately been edited out.
Keep an eye out for a doco call "France's War in Color", this is a doozy, much of the color footage has been taken by German soldier on leave in France (or on occupation duty), at one point in the film, Parisians are shown "picking" over PACKED garden vegetable stands in an open air market, meanwhile the author has the audacity to claim that they can't obtain food & that they are starving!! a true doublethink moment.
I'm curious about this part:
The first of the six 45-minute episodes, dealing with the massacres of Soviet Jews after the 1941 invasion, includes previously unseen film of a roundup of Jews in a Lithuanian village and of ordinary German conscripts, not just the fanatical Nazi SS, taking part in executions.
Also striking is home-movie film of senior German officials among the occupying forces in the east partying as their troops carried out the bloodiest act of barbarism in human history.
This is synopsis of part 4:
The fourth episode, 'Murder Factory', discusses Auschwitz, the largest extermination camp. Jews and other 'undesirables' were transported to Auschwitz in cattle trains. Selected people would be gassed, the corpses taken to crematoria and their ashes disposed. Deception to the end is the master plan. The selected people would have no idea (or a vague rumour) until the poisonous gas reached their noses. Only one person survived the gas chamber, a crying baby on top of the corpses. That baby was shot dead. Inhumanity isn't restricted to the Nazis. An example is a prisoner whose was robbed of his cap by a fellow prisoner (the penalty for not having a cap is death). The robbed prisoner stole a cap from another prisoner, who was executed the next morning.
What did you think of these parts of the film?
