A French documentary about Nazi concentration camps during WW II. By far, the best documentary I have ever seen. It's is just 30 minutes long, but will keep you thinking for hours afterwards.

Puoli tuntia kestävä matka helvettiin täynnä inhottavia kuvia, mahtavaa monologia ja sanoinkuvaamatonta tunnetta. Olisi täydellinen leffa, ellei musiikki olisi aivan perseelleen sävelletty. Musiikkia kuunnellessa voisi kuvitella, että kyseessä olisi koko perheen feelgood-elokuva.

(Mu) Maybe this was the first film in wich I found those images. The setting (just seren travellings and shots on the ground) ant then, trying to be normal knowing its imposible, the images, the voice in off description...

One of the most vivid depictions of the horrors of Nazi Concentration Camps. Filmed in 1955 at several concentration camps in Poland, the film combines new color and black and white footage with black and white newsreels, footage shot by the victorious allies, and stills, to tell the story not only of the camps, but to portray the horror of man's brutal inhumanity.
Release date: 1 January 1956

" Notes: The damned thing turned out to be really impressive, even quite unforgettable I might add. Indeed, it is a great companion piece to ‘Shoah’, even if both movies tackled this subject in two completely different ways. At least, this movie was much shorter than ‘Shoah’ so you might assume that it is much easier to swallow but you would be actually mistaken. In fact, you might be grateful that it is rather short because they gave us some of the most horrifying images I came across. "

A classic

“Since I kept hearing some great things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. Well, the damned thing turned out to be really impressive, even quite unforgettable I might add. Indeed, it is a great companion piece to ‘Shoah’, even if both movies tackled this subject in two completely different ways. At least, this movie was much shorter than ‘Shoah’ so you might assume that it is much easier to swallow but you would be actually mistaken. In fact, you might be grateful that it is rather short because they gave us some of the most horrifying images I came across. The interesting thing is that the damned thing started with some rather bucolic shots of the countryside with some fairly whimsical tune. They even made some sarcastic jokes about the architecture of the guards” read more

"On vaikea käsittää näiden kuvien tenhoa vuoden 1956 kontekstissa, jälleenrakentavan Euroopan kollektiivisen unohduksen keskellä. Vaikka holokausti on sittemmin estetisoitu osaksi populaarikulttuuria, kärsimyksestä on tehty pornografiaa, Resnaisin rajattu, hillitty ja teeskentelemätön essee on säilyttänyt kauhistuttavan tuoreutensa ja ajankohtaisuutensa. Yö ja usva on niin rehellinen, että sen arviointi elokuvana tuntuu epärehelliseltä tai jopa epäinhimilliseltä. (interweb 19.4)"

" The icy water of the ponds and ruins fill the hallows of the mass graves, a frigid and muddy water, as murky as our memory. War nods off to sleep, but keeps one eye always open."
