    This documentary contains all the film footage taken by Soviet cameramen after the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp, between Jan. 27 and Feb. 28, 1945. Among other things, it depicts the camp area immediately after entry by the First Ukrainian Front of the Red Army. Documentary pictures are interspersed with an interview with Alexander Vorontzov (Woronzow), the cameraman who accompanied the Red Army soldiers and did most of the filming. The whole is accompanied by commentary describing the selection and extermination process, medical experiments, and everyday life in the concentration camp at Auschwitz.
