This is a 60-minute condensed and abridged version of the original 3-hour documentary with the same title, which is also available for streaming.


In 2005, filmmakers Dietrich Wagner and Rolf Bickel revisited their 1993 documentary Verdict on Auschwitz (180 min.) in an effort to make a shorter version for use in classrooms and for broadcasting. The result is a one-hour program on the unique Auschwitz Trial held in Frankfurt am Main, West Germany, from 1963 to 1965. It makes use of the same audiotaped courtroom recordings, discovered by the filmmakers, along with extensive and exclusive original film material, original photos, and current interviews with witnesses and other people involved in the trial.
