    • TRIVIA (1)

      • This episode is known as one of the most censored moments on TV. Being sponsored by The American Gas Co. they wanted all references to gas chambers removed from this drama about accountability for the Holocaust. Claude Rains conspired with fellow cast members to defy the idiotic censorship and say 'gas chamber' as originally written in the script.
