Auschwitz is a half-documentary, half-scripted film about the horror that was Auschwitz, the notorious Nazi concentration camp. The documentary parts of the film, which make up acts 1 and 3, depict interviews with clueless German students, but it's the middle, 2nd act, that is truly hard to watch. In it, Boll depicts everyday life at the camp, from officers discussing daily routine, to the burning and gassing of innocent people.
