PROGRAM 002 – THE HELP STORY
Jewish Death Camp prisoners assigned by the SS to meet Jews as they first arrived by train. Expected to quickly collect the luggage of the new arrivals and remove dead bodies out of the cattle cars, the prisoners were under strict orders not to communicate in any way with the discharged passengers. Facing execution if caught, some of the prisoners defied orders and passed along life-saving advice. This is their story.
