Nuremberg: The Trial of the Nazi War Criminals

Episode 6 - The Killing Machine

Jan. 11, 2022

When Allied soldiers first encounter the Concentration Camps in Germany, it’s hard to believe: millions worked or starved to death. But now the investigators start to hear about the camps in the East – especially a place called Auschwitz – designed only to exterminate.

And in Hamburg, two Jewish German refugees now lead the British Army investigation into Tesch & Stabenow AG. It appears to be a harmless pest-control company...but it also marketed Zyklon B, the principal poison gas used in the camps. The trouble is, the British Administration needs Tesch & Stabenow to keep working, needs its products to fumigate factories and ships in the harbour. Featuring Mark Edel-Hunt as Captain Anton Freud and Andrew Woodall as Sergeant Fred Pelican, War Crimes Investigators.
