Excellent documentary with archival footage
25 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an intense documentary of the extermination of the Jewish people in the Holocaust, with much archival footage. The scenes are often gripping and horrifying in their veracity, but it is a must see for any student of the Holocaust. There is a reference close to the end of a letter from 93 virgins requesting the kaddish for them in the future - this particular letter was proved later to be a hoax (http://www.hashkafah.com) Regardless, it is an excellent documentary even with the often melodramatic voice of Elizabeth Taylor. Most Holocaust literature attempts to play down such drama because the reality simply cannot be conveyed. I will use this in film class.
