Documentary witness to auschwitz

With so few survivors of the Holocaust left to share their first-hand testimony, what is the right approach to those with accounts that can it be proved?



Ninety-three-year-old Denis Avey is a British hero of the Holocaust who helped save the life of an Auschwitz inmate. He wrote about this heroic act, verified by the man he saved, in a best-selling book. But its publication generated a heated debate. That's because Denis also claimed to have broken in to the Nazi concentration camp itself. Why would anyone do such a thing and was it even possible?



Witness to Auschwitz examines the controversy surrounding this latest Holocaust account and asks why is it so important to know the truth

  • ALL EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ : By Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez

    I walked down the street in Barcelona , and suddenly discovered a terrible truth - Europe died in Auschwitz . We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, and talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world. The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: scienc More..

  • I have read his book and i believe him many people did extraordinary things in those days of war which we would consider outrageous now and others went into concentration camps and came out alive.

  • the best proof of the holocaust is all the news reels taken at the time....there are many videos of mass graves, dorms with starving people....all the camps, the trains filled with people....the halocaust happened, we have video proof. the survivors were saved by foreign troops coming in.........hitler was one sick, mentally ill person....and all the people that were on his staff were also sick.

    • @-shauna-

      There is no film from the real extermination camps.

      All the dead people you see in those news reels are from labour camps.

      They died of disease, all the people you see in the news reels.

      The news reels was directed by a hollywood instructer and nothing but propaganda.

  • I have no reason to doubt the Holocaust, other than the fact that many otherwise free countries put you in jail for saying it didn't happen...

      Well, in a way, if I have to explain it, you probably won't understand. It's kind of like the Emperor's New Clothes. No one ever says anything to him because you are just expected to believe him without question.

      If it is such a factual slam dunk and it is so crazy to question it, why put nut cases in jail who poo poo it? Doesn't that give credence to their point of view? Do we put people in jail who preach the end of the world will be on a certain date?

      It's like "Global W More..

  • The holocaust didn't happen, it was a plot by the jews to take over the world by mass murdering themselves to summon an evil alien overlord. It took him 50 years... but he arrived. his name is Bieber.

  • For many years after the Nazi Holocaust no one said anything about the camps or deaths.Not until the jews could get some out of it. When Germany gave out compensation to Nazi Holocaust survivors the number steadily increased because people lied to get the money.This guy i dont believe a whole lot.

  • This guy is soo full of shit. According to him he regularly broke in ASW. Why did he do it? He says he wanted to be a witness so he had to go back again and again I dont see how breaking in once wouldnt accomplish the same thing. Fair enough Il give him the benefit of the doubt so where was he when the Nuremberg trial started?
    This man never speaks up till he writes a book to make a buck or two pathetic.
    A lot of atrocities occurred in those concentration camps but fake tales from ppl like him More..
