        Part 3: Liberation | Meeting Max: A Holocaust Survivor's Story

        Luke presents a series of archival photographs detailing the liberation of the the concentration camp where Max Steinmetz was a prisoner. But Max was not there - he had been sent on a death march. Max tells his story of the final days of World War II when he was forced to march 50 miles while other prisoners all around him were being summarily executed. Max escaped and found refuge with a German family. But he questions their motives in saving him. Were they really trying to save themselves from the retribution of the Allies instead? American soldiers liberated Max and he was saved. But questions about the Holocaust and the guilt or innocence of the German people remain in Max’s mind.
