SEX/NUDITY 1 - A man being interviewed by reporters says, "Very attractive girls with nice breasts."
VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Several people tour Auschwitz and we are told about specific rooms and what happened there: the "undressing room" is described, a gas chamber is described and we are told that people were ushered into a shower room and locked inside before cyanide crystals were poured through openings in the ceiling and they were killed (we hear muffled screams of people).
► A woman imagines many people filing down stairs and into "undressing rooms." We see mounds of used shoes piled into storage areas (presumably gathered from victims at Auschwitz).
► A man is splattered with mustard on his back as he walks by a crowd. A man in an audience yells at a woman about the Holocaust during a presentation and the man is asked to sit down and security is called. A woman argues with a man in several scenes.
► We see a video of right wing groups (skinheads, neo-Nazis, etc.) giving the Nazi salute to a man.
► A man steps on a barb from a barb-wire fence and yelps.
► A man tells jokes about the Holocaust. A woman lectures about Holocaust deniers. We hear about delousing clothing and how to kill lice.
