Last December, Rick Halperin, director of SMU's Human Rights Education Program, took nine students from the university to a frigid Poland, where they visited Auschwitz, Birkenau, Stutthof and Treblinka, among several other Nazi concentration camps. (Halperin has led such sojourns for the last 13 years.) One of his students wrote about his experience back then, but today, the university has posted to YouTube a 33-minute documentary about the trip: Lost Lives, Lost Stories, shot by Sherry Aikman, one of the students on the trip, and edited by Nathan Gibbs. You can see it in its entirety after the jump.
