When I clicked to open the Video on YouTube, I was constantly confronted with an advertisement for the World of Tanks Online game series, saying "Kämpf mit!" :-)

I didn't know Hitchcock was into documentaries. However I can see why this was considered too much for people to watch. I wouldn't want to see it in total as it is simply too much to bear for people like us grown up in such a peaceful environment.

Several steps of acclimatization the contemporaries who were involved went through, we have never experienced. Which brings me to the point all the harsh criticism within such documentaries misses in my opinion: You can hardly denounce inhuman treatment of humans, when the system did not consider them to be humans in the first place. What happened simply was the logical consequence of what must follow once the decision makers and its operational forces have discarded all reservations within their plans.

It has more in common with a natural disaster which occurred to specific parts of the population rather than the popular term "mass murder". Which in turn is also why everyone involved in these operations was able to continue their ordinary and law-abiding lives afterwards in strong contrast to what murderers usually do.
