One of the many World War II Nazi concentration camps whose names are synonymous with evil, Buchenwald imposed razor-sharp punishments on its prisoners for even the slightest infraction of draconian rules. In fact, the dogs that resided in the camp enjoyed living conditions far superior to those of the inmates. Part One of this harrowing documentary discusses the events that transpired in the camp between 1937 and 1942, while Part Two looks at the camp from 1942 through 1945. The entire program culminates with the 1945 liberation of Buchenwald, when American military operatives finally discovered the abominations that had occurred inside of it - and many victims, desirous of revenge, began systematic attempts to hunt down camp personnel.
