When the Nazi armies invaded the Soviet Union in 1941, they brought with them units called Einsatzgruppen. Their mission was as clear as it was inhuman, to kill all Jews, communists, gypsies and other enemies of the Third Reich.



When the Nazi armies invaded the Soviet Union in 1941, they brought with them units called Einsatzgruppen. Their mission was as clear as it was inhuman, to kill all Jews, communists, gypsies and other enemies of the Third Reich.

The atrocities of these mobile killing units have long been overshadowed by the horrors of the death camps, but NAZIS' SECRET KILLING SQUADS opens a window into their operations. The story is told through the eyes of Ben Ferencz, a former Nazi war crimes prosecutor who witnessed the horrors firsthand. Examine the chilling records of the Einsatzgruppen's activities found in Berlin after the war, which list the ethnic groups slaughtered, the names of the commanders and where and when the atrocities occurred. And see how,in one incident alone-more than 30,000 Jews were killed in three days at Babi Yar, stripped naked, lined up in front of a pit and shot dead in group after group.

It's a lesson from the past that has dreadful echoes today in Africa and the former Yugoslavia.
