The Road to Treblinka
Documentary showing how the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941 was a crucial catalyst for the radicalisation of the Nazi policy against the Jews.
"We used to shoot them, give them up as lost and that was it." - Petras Zelionka, former member of the Nazi killing squad.
How could it happen? How was it possible that the Nazis created killing factories in order to exterminate the Jews and others they thought 'undesirable'?
Filmed in Poland, Germany and Lithuania, this documentary demonstrates how the invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941, in the fulfilment of Hitler's ideological vision, was a crucial catalyst to the radicalisation of the Nazi policy against the Jews.
With the help of archive discoveries and frank interviews with victims, bystanders and a former member of a Nazi killing squad, The Road to Treblinka traces the decision-making process that led to one of the greatest crimes the world has ever seen - the Holocaust.
