Mr. Death: The Rise and Fall of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr.

The only experience he had...
was design modifications
for the Missouri gas chambers
in Jacksonville.

[ Carol ]
Birkenau I never went in.

I stayed in the car,
with no keys,

and froze my... whatever off--

I was in the car
for hours.

I brought books to read.
Mystery books.
And crossword puzzles.
I do a lot
of crossword puzzles.

I didn't consider it
my honeymoon.
Let's put it that way.

I don't know that we ever
slept in the same bed
while we were there.

I try to forget
about going there.

[ Leuchter ]
I should note that
everything that was done,

was done
in the best possible taste,

understanding that these things
are national shrines
and national monuments.

The only thing that was
a little bit harrowing
or frightening...

is that I didn't want
to get caught.

Unfortunately, you have to
make a lot of noise when you're
chiseling brick out of walls.

[ Van Pelt ]
Auschwitz is like
the holy of holies.
