Having recently visited the prisoner of war camps in poland i was very keen to watch this film as previous reveiws were quite complimentarary. I have started to collect dvd films detailing the second world war and the treatment of the jewish community etc.
I was very disapointed with this film, the subject matter really doesnt need any introduction yet i found in some parts that the portrayal was quite jokey by some of the characters which i found to be irritating and incensitive.
The original footage and the typed information which flashed upon the screen were the only things to keep you on your toes and interested from an historical point of view.
If you are looking for a more concise and informative dvd then i would recommend BBC`s documentary series titled Auschwitz
