Welcome to the companion Web site to "Holocaust on Trial," originally broadcast
on October 31, 2000. The film uses a celebrated recent trial as a springboard
to examine and successfully challenge the notion of Holocaust denial. Here's what you'll find online:
- Timeline of Nazi Abuses
From January 30, 1933, when Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany, until May 7, 1945, when World War II ended, the Nazis unleashed a reign of terror on Europe's Jews, Gypsies, and others. Follow the crescendo of injustices in this illustrated chronology. Caution: This feature contains disturbing photographs.
- The Director's Story
"It was at times hard to take in the unimaginable tragedy that was being quietly explored in an English courtroom." So says NOVA producer Leslie Woodhead in this frank and deeply personal account of the making of "Holocaust on Trial."
- Results of Death-Camp Experiments: Should They Be Used?
Should researchers be able to make use of the findings from Nazi medical experiments on concentration-camp inmates? Form your own opinion in this ethical provocation. Caution: This feature may not be suitable for children.
- Exposing Flawed Science
To back up his claim that the Nazis used Auschwitz's gas chambers only to fumigate corpses, reputed Holocaust denier David Irving relied on research that experts maintain was flawed. What exactly constitutes poor science? Get a sense in this interactive feature.
