The Holocaust: Two films that should be seen by all

Kitty Hart, a holocaust survivor, returns to Auschwitz for the first time since the war

Kitty Returns to Auschwitz - 1980 - 90 Minutes
Kitty, who was in the camp as a child, returns with her son.
The programme records Kitty Hart's first journey to Auschwitz since the war. She takes her son, David, with her to try to explain to him the full horror of what she and her mother had seen and experienced while they were prisoners there. It is a detailed, harrowing account of everyday life in the concentration camp, delivered with the passion of a survivor determined that what she witnessed and endured will never be forgotten.

The Ambulance - 1962 - 10 Minutes
Reconstruction of the Nazi gassing of children in wagons.
If there was not so much evidence of the use of gas wagons by the Nazis in Russia and Poland (over 7000 were murdered in this way in Krasnodor alone), one could not believe this film. It reconstructs one incident involving a small group of Jewish children. A very moving story told without words.

This film was made in 1962 in black and white, so the film and sound quality is not to modern standards. This should not diminish its value as a moving document.
£17.25 plus postage, and VAT if applicable
