A West German documentary about the making of her 'gypsy' feature film Tiefland contained interviews with Romany concentration camp survivors involved in the production. For this film, Riefenstahl cast 60 Romany extras in 1941 and 1942. She found these people in a small holding concentration camp near Salzburg. After being used without pay, they were returned to the camp system and all but two families exterminated.
Riefenstahl's passionate denials of this were rejected by the German legal system.
