"Very informative. I already knew the history, but I wanted a record of it. I am trying to collect all Holocaust DVDs I can to keep arecord for posterity. When I die I will donate them to my synagogue. I'm trying to find a DVD on Treblinka, but have not found one yet.
Contains glaring factual errors

"I worked my way through these series of DVDs focusing on the infamous camps operated by the Nazis during WW II. In "Holocaust - Dachau and Sachsenhausen", the narrator states that Adolf Eichmann was the Commandant at Auschwitz! This is not true - Eichmann was never the Commandant at Auschwitz, he was the architect of the Final Solution, managing the herculean task of facilitating the transportation of millions of Jews to ghettoes and extermination/concentration camps throughout Europe. The most famous commandant of Auschwitz was Rudolf Hoss, who was eventually hanged for his crimes against humanity in 1947.The footage did not reflect anything new, as most of it has already been covered in other documentaries covering the Holocaust. The focus is more on the rise of the Third Reich and not as much on the camps themselves. Disappointing, rent if you must."
