1944: Should We Bomb Auschwitz? 7.30pm, Sky History
Streaming on NOW
January 27 marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest of all the Nazi death camps.
Across the world, today is also marked as Holocaust Memorial Day and this is one of several TV programmes marking the event.
In April 1944, two Jewish prisoners miraculously escaped from Auschwitz.
When they recounted what they had left behind, their harrowing testimony revealed the true horror of the Holocaust to the outside world for the first time.
The forensic detail they presented raised one of the greatest moral questions of the 20th century to the Allied Forces, whether or not they should bomb Auschwitz.
This moral dilemma created many hard questions faced by the Allies and the Jewish Agency.
