2 editions published in 2007 in German and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On December 20, 1963, the Frankfurt Court of Assizes began a historic trial. On August 20, 1965, after years of investigation, the 20 months of proceedings concluded with a verdict in one of the most significant trials in German legal history. In the dock were 22 members of the Waffen-SS, who were staff members at Auschwitz. 360 witnesses, including 211 survivors of Auschwitz-Birkenau, 54 former members of the SS garrison of the camp, 34 other former SS or police officers and 61 other persons testified. Members of the court even visited Auschwitz-Birkenau--an extraordinary event--as Poland and Germany had no official relationship at the time. This trial brought the German people to grips with the collective amnesia German society had affected in the postwar period. The facts of individual involvement in crimes at Auschwitz-Birkenau were revealed, and individual responsibility for the mass murder of millions assigned. The documentary explores the investigation, the courtroom drama, and the verdict
