This BBC documentary series tells the chilling story behind Auschwitz - the site of the largest mass murder in the history of the world.
Few know the true and surprising history of this infamous place, nor how it fitted into the Nazis' overall plan for the mass extermination of the Jews - what they called the 'Final Solution'.
The destructive dynamism of Auschwitz became both a microcosm of the Nazi State and the logical consequence of Hitler's warped worldview.
Combining rare archive footage, CGI illustrations of the camp never before seen on television and dramatic reconstructions of the key decision-making moments, this series tells the story of Auschwitz and the horrific ideology behind it.
