The U.S. and the Holocaust

"The USA and the Holocaust" starts with familiar aspects and then expands on them. National Socialism, the Second World War and the policy of extermination are described from a perspective that most people are not very familiar with. The moving accounts of contemporary witnesses; the fates of families and their attempts to escape the killing are combined with often unpublished or little-known film footage to create a gripping TV experience. Six-part mini-series.
