“During World War II when British pilots used aerial photography to pinpoint German bombing targets in Silesia, the Auschwitz concentration camp, which was nearby, was clearly depicted in the pictures, but nothing was done to destroy it and free its prisoners. Somehow the long, sinewy lines of people huddled before gas chambers went unseen. The photographs were promptly filed away, only to be unearthed thirty years later. The film examines these aerial photographs of Auschwitz taken by American bombers.”
