Synopsis

Second of a two part TV documentary on the Nazi murder programme that led to the notorious Auschwitz camp. Follows the development of Nazi and SS plans for mass exterminations of the Jews in the countries they occupied and how the killings by shooting squads evolved into the system of concentration camps and gas chambers. Also looks at the industrialisation of the whole process of murder - with the confiscation of possessions and use of slave labour via selections.
