Auschwitz Through the Lens of Nazi Officers
U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum
This video offers a unique look at how Nazi officers viewed Auschwitz.

The disturbing implication is that people who appear ordinary are capable of committing monstrous acts.
The Lodz Ghetto: A Comparison of Nazi and Jewish Photographs
U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum
In this interview, the Chief Photo Archivist for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum compares two sets of photos taken of the Lodz Ghetto: one by a high-ranking Nazi official, and another taken by a Jew imprisoned in the ghetto. As the comparison shows, the very same scene often appears quite different depending on who is taking the photograph.
War on the Weak: Eugenics in America
This brief documentary describes the early 20th Century eugenics movement in the United States, including its historical connection to animal breeding. Not only did the eugenics movement result in the forced sterilization of 60,000 Americans, it became a blueprint for the eugenics movement that followed in Nazi Germany.
Contemporary Anti-Semitism on Palestinian Television
