A somber 60 Minutes segment on the Holocaust. Lara Logan reports on a Catholic priest who's in search of Hitler's secret killing fields.

Perhaps the most chilling words from an eyewitness account: "For 3 days the ground moved. Some [victims] were still alive."

The Krauts got off easily. Apparently having 1/4 of Germany drive shitty cars for 45 years was sufficient penance.

What went on in Europe, out east, can never be fully comprehended. A book I recommend reading if ever in the mood is "Hitler's Furies" by Wendy Lower or "Bloodlands". Babies thrown off clifftops along with their mothers, working out which corpses will quicken the fires at Treblinka...Chilling does not begin to cover it. You feel the need to shower.

What's interesting about this priest's work is that he's uncovering graves that were never on record. Thousands of people that were murdered and forgotten until now. Incredibly sad.

It makes you wonder if the reported 6 million deaths was a conservative estimate.

I imagine it is a conservative estimate. We'll never know how many Russians died fighting for sure and I imagine it'd be the same for the Holocaust. Such a wide area to cover and in territories with long memories.

Like the priest says, wherever there were Jews, the Nazis weren't going to stop. They even tallied up the number in the UK if I'm not mistaken. Such a massive thing to get your head around though all the same -mass graves, ravines, camps, forests, woods...and not just by the Einsatzgruppen themselves but locals as well.

A noble endeavour by the priest and an emotionally heavy one.
