In the face of Iran's Holocaust denial conference in December and contemporary desensitization comes this startling German documentary:
Verdict on Auschwitz: The Frankfurt Auschwitz Trial 1963–1965
Directed by Rolf Bickel and Dietrich Wagner
On August 20, 1965, after 20 months of proceedings, the verdict was pronounced in one of the most significant trials in German legal history: The court heard 360 Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp survivors and other witnesses from 19 countries in a trial against 22 members of the SS accused of taking part in the mass murder of millions.
