This somber documentary uses historical film footage to recount the trial of Nazi war criminals for their participation in the genocide at the Majdanek death camp. In July 1944, evidence surfaced of the atrocities that led to a combined inquiry by the Soviet Union and Poland. Camp survivors and Nazi soldiers were interviewed to determine the extent of the genocide.
