Near the end of World War II, three freed inmates at a German concentration camp in Linz Austria (camp #3) discuss their treatment while at the camp. They speak in English but with varying accents including French. They speak in an open yard of the camp, with barracks in the background. The former inmates talk about lethal injections, cold baths, whippings, hangings, and extermination camps. They also talk about the joy when the camp was liberated by the Americans, which was preceded by the Americans bombing the Nazi forces in the area. They mention that the bombing cut off the water to the camp so the SS forces could no longer subject inmates to the cold baths. They discuss hangings of three prisoners from a scaffold in the yard behind them, and how all the camp inmates were assembled and forced to look at the hung inmates. One of the freed inmates talking is named Alex. They discuss how the jews in the camp had been rounded up and locked in a room with no food. They were in the room two days before being saved by the Americans. They also talk about the camp at Mauthausen where prisoners were subjected to hard labor, torture with heavy rocks, and executed by the SS after 5 days. Also they speak of inmates put in chains and dogs used at Mauthausen.
