Abstract:

As time and neglect take their toll, the Nazi death camps of World War II are falling apart. Should these solemn memorials to the millions who died there be restored, as a reminder of the Holocaust and a warning to future generations, or should they be allowed to disappear forever, to help heal the deeply wounded spirit of humanity? And what should be done with the slowly deteriorating shoes and other fragile relics collected by museums? Has the time come to lay these artifacts to rest, or must they too be kept alive for their value as evidence of the Nazis' monstrous atrocities? Filmed at Auschwitz, this ABC News program searches for the answers. (22 minutes)

Filmed at present-day Auschwitz, this program discusses what, if anything, should be preserved. Presents opinions of those who believe that the camp should be preserved as a warning to future generations and those that believe it and its artifacts be allowed to crumble naturally.
