Product description

What is the price of peace? During World War II, the French were forced to ask themselves that very question, when the Nazi war machine marched through their streets. Forced to collaborate with Hitler in exchange for their safety, the French were torn.

The controversial armistice treaty between the occupier and occupied is laid bare in Convoys of Shame, an unprecedented documentary that shows the true cost of compromise. This tell-all film explores the grim logistics of the Holocaust. Even genocide requires hard work, and the French company SNCF was responsible for the organization, care, and shipment of over 76,000 Jews, 20,000 gypsies, and 38,000 rebels to concentration camps from 1940 to 1944.

The film illustrates this calculated, methodical collaboration through archived footage, dramatic re-enactments, testimonials, and interviews with historical experts. This rich tapestry blends seamlessly into a chilling narrative about the depths of human desperation, and the effects of war on every facet of a country’s economy.
