    In 2006, a long-forgotten canister of film was discovered in a Devon church. What it showed was chilling: SS soldiers directing slave labourers in a Nazi road-building programme. This gripping work of historical detection uncovers the true story behind that grainy footage. It locates the site of the construction project in Ukraine, names the perpetrators, and identifies the victims: Red Army prisoners, Jews and others, of whom the Romanian painter Arnold Daghani was one of the few survivors.
