Abstract:

When the Germans invaded Hungary in 1944, they shipped virtually the entire Jewish population to Auschwitz. Separated from his family, Dr. Miklos Nyiszli was chosen to direct the medical pathology work carried on among the prisoners by the Nazis for the purpose of 'scientific research'. Miraculously Dr. Nyiszli survived, and later wrote this documentary of his experiences. Through his eyes, we witness not only the day-to-day horrors of life in the KZ but also the slow disintegration of an empire built to last a thousand years.
