A German girl is overcome as she is forced to walk through and around the exhumed bodies of some 800 slave workers that the SS guards near Namering, Germany murdered. The US Army who liberated the camp laid them out so that the townspeople, who feverishly denied knowledge of the camp, could view the work of their Nazi leaders.

Arriving at Auschwitz, children and their mothers, along with the old and infirm, were taken directly to the gas chambers. Those exhausted by slave labor and the appalling conditions joined them, while camp doctors, including the notorious Josef Mengele, selected thousands of prisoners for cruel, crippling and life-threatening experimentation. By 1944, so many were being killed that the bodies had to be burnt on huge pyres, fueled, partly, by the victim’s own fat.
