Abstract This document consists of a series of affidavits, given by the persons responsible for the creation of the motion picture, "Nazi Concentration Camps," attesting to representational veracity of that film; and the complete text of the film's narration, which describes the appalling atrocities committed in the camps as well as their unprecedented scope. The text includes an interview with Jack Taylor, lieutenant in the U.S. Navy, who survived internment in the Mauthausen camp (pp.7-8). This document is a typewritten copy of poor to good quality on extremely brown, brittle paper.
