Thanks for your comment. The only part if it I have ever seen is 
shocking footage of animals being slaughtered. I heard on the radio 
recently that people who watched the film when it first came out 
reacted to it the way people in the US reacted to Upton Sinclair's 
THE JUNGLE, with the result that laws were passed which are still in 
force prohibiting the cruel slaughter of animals. They are still 
slaughtered in Germany, of course, but it cannot be done legally 
unless an effort is made to minimize the victim's distress. Not a 
bad idea, that. If the Germans had taken the same care about the way 
they treated humans we might think quite differently about them 
today. It is an odd thing about human nature that Himmler thought 
nothing of presiding over the slaughter of millions of people, yet 
was unable to shoot a doe. I guess he was able to kill chickens, 
though, unless he famred them just for their eggs.
