Drone captures never before seen concentration camp footage

AERIAL shots of Auschwitz concentration camp give a chilling new perspective of the historical site.

BiG Productions creative director Gi Orman and his crew were given permission to fly a drone over Auschwitz in Poland, with the footage being used as part of an upcoming documentary about the Holocaust.

More than one million people were killed at Auschwitz by the Nazis, with one in six of the Jewish people killed dying at the German camp.

The crew had two hours to shoot the footage before the camp opened to the public and Orman says the opportunity to gain vision with no visitors walking helped to capture the morbid history attached to the site.

The vision was captured hours before any visitors had arrived.

"When you read about it and you see pictures in a book it's one thing. But when you see it from the air and you see how vast and huge the killing machine and you see how vast and huge the camps were that the Nazis built to murder the Jews there is no words to explain it."

The video aims to give audiences a new understanding of the sheer scale of Auschwitz and the methodical nature of how it was set out.
