From the descriptions and illustrations of the gas chambers in the interview, I would like to point out that it was indeed a horrible place. Nearing it meant death. The brutality with which the Nazis through children and weak prisoners to the burning hydrogen cyanide, gasoline and carbon monoxide was a clear indication that it was a deadly place. Such tense feelings were increased by the presence of a free-standing chimney that was situated next to it. It indeed a torturous place that only lucky people like Eli Wiesel and his father would escape.
In my opinion, I would like to express that Phil Donahue’s interviews are quite informative. A demonstrated in the video clip, it touched on an emotive issue that caused agonies to a large number of people. Despite the opinions held, the interviews still create a clear picture of exactly what happened during holocaust.
