Scenes of a "Gestapo torture chamber" in Paris. A contingent inspects the torture chamber; a line of relatives of torture victims waits outside. More interior shots, including a room where victims were burned. Handprints are visible on the walls, and a man points them out to the camera and places his hands in some of the impressions by way of illustration. In another room, a group of men inspects wooden posts to which people were presumably tied and executed. The tops of the posts are riddled with what may be bullet holes. A string of rosary beads and a blindfold have been placed on one of the posts. One of the men inspecting the posts is a survivor of the prison. Inspection of a pit that appears to be a mass grave.
