an in depth look at the mastermind behind the worlds most notorious concentration camp
I enjoyed the format and chronological style mixed with the personal stories of those who were there. What I thought most intriging, was the combination of referencing the book that the Commandant of Auschwitz wrote before his execution and the personal account of the surviving members. In effect, it showed both perspectives of how the camp evolved into it's place in history and some of the logistical aspects, recently discovered, of how the camp was structured. Unlike other history DVD's, this one was not dry and had very little interpretation which, otherwise tends, to divert and/or bore the audience with political and military statistics . The collabiration of the psychological reasoning that the Camp Commandant confesses in his book and the victims gruesome stories of camp life make it a well rounded historical referencing tool. Superb re-enactments and research by the director and BBC resulted in a truly amazing DVD.
