When Allied troops invaded Germany and liberated Nazi death camps in World War II, they found unspeakable horrors which still haunt the world's conscience. FRONTLINE presents the world broadcast of a 1945 film made by British and American film crews who were with the troops liberating the camps. This film was compiled by British and American film crews working directly for the Supreme Headquarters of the Allied Expeditionary Force in Europe. Editing was done mostly under the supervision of the British Ministry of Information, some of it under the direction of Alfred Hitchcock. Narrated by Trevor Howard.
