Nuremberg (2000): Auschwitz Details
00:03:10 - 00:06:28
  • History → World War II → The Nuremberg Trials
Rudolf Höss, commandant of Auschwitz, is questioned by Chief U.S. Prosecutor Robert H. Jackson. He describes the changes in the camp, from detention center to death camp, and goes into detail about the camp's efficiency. Important to note is that, while Höss' testimony is accurate, in reality, Prison Chief Interrogator Colonel John Amen read the details from an affidavit (Document 3868-PS) submitted by Höss at the request of the Prosecution.
