"Five Jewish Hungarians, now U.S. citizens, tell their stories: before March, 1944, when Nazis began to exterminate Hungarian Jews, months in concentration camps, and visiting childhood homes more than 50 years later. An historian, a Sonderkommando, a doctor who experimented on Auschwitz prisoners, and US soldiers who were part of the liberation in April, 1945, also comment. Most telling are details: Renée packing her bathing suit, Irene swallowing the diamonds her mother gave her to buy bread, Alice's memorial for her sister Klara, Bill escaping police by jumping into a line of Jews going to Buchenwald, and Tom told by a US soldier to have "all the damn bananas and oranges you can eat."--Site de IMDb, visionné le 30 janvier 2013

Salò, o, Le 120 giornate di Sodoma Salò, the 120 days of Sodom by Pier Paolo Pasolini( visu )
1 edition published in 2008 in Italian and held by 218 libraries worldwide
In the titles, Pasolini informs viewers that it is "1944-45 nell' Italia Settentrionale durante l'occupazione nazifascista [in Northern Italy during the Nazi-Fascist occupation]." That, along with the "Bibliografia essenziale" that precedes it, indicates that a political meaning, dealing with the corruption of absolute power, was uppermost in the filmmakers mind. Motives aside, Pasolini's interpretation of the Marquis de Sade's eighteenth century opus of torture and degradation remains banned in many countries, is deemed one of the most disturbing films ever made, and is still-- 30 years after its initial release-- notorious and controversial
