Something not to be forgotten!
12 March 2000 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

A documentary about the 'Final solution' to the Jewish people in Europe in the early 20th Century. Filled with period black and white photos of mass graves, death camps, historical figures and period film, this film really captures the times - definitely not the brightest time for the Jewish people but as this film shows, there is always hope. Recommended for anyone wanting to know about the holocaust - something that did happen and should not be forgotten in this new millennium.
