Did You Know…

I was reading the news today about a holocaust surviver revisiting the death camp she was sent to…
I tell you the story had me riveted…
So I did some further research…
Did you know that when the allies freed the camps they brought along a film crew…
They filmed what they saw so they could prove to the rest of the Germans exactly what they were doing in the death camps…
The films were made into a documentary by the help of none other than Alfred Hitchcock…
He flew from Hollywood and took two months refusing pay to make the films as believable as possible…
His goal was to make the documentary so that nobody could say it was faked…
So I watched the film…
I never knew or even thought about how we cleaned up those camps…
Did you know that we captured the SS men and women ( and there were a ton of women )…
We captured them and for a week we made them bury all of the bodies…
While the refugees were cleaned up fed and cursed and jeered at the guard while they buried the thousands of bodies…
I never knew that…
Well I won’t go into any more details as I have had a hard time digesting this film myself…
If you are curious check out this link…
