German soldiers react to footage of concentration camps

This forced process was part of the Allied policy of postwar denazification, meant to purge Germany of the remnants of Nazi rule and rebuild its civil society, infrastructure, and economy. The program included compulsory visits to nearby concentration camps and forcing German prisoners of war to view films documenting the Nazis' treatment of "inferior" people.

The footage came from a newsreel shown in the US that was seen by millions and millions of people at the time.
