Storyline

The Polish city of Lodz was under Nazi occupation for nearly the entire duration of WWII. The segregation of the Jewish population into the ghetto, and the subsequent horrors of the occupation are vividly chronicled through newsreels and photographs. The narration is taken almost entirely from journals and diaries of those who lived--and died--through the course of the occupation, with the number of different narrators diminishing over the course of the film, symbolic of the death of each narrator. Written by Jason A. Cormier <wildrose@mindspring.com>

Powerful and unique
15 May 2010 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Very powerful, moving chronicle of one Polish Jewish ghetto in WWII, which has it's population go from 200,000 souls to only 800 left by the liberation. All the narration is taken from the diaries and writings of those who were actually there, and the visuals include some amazing film and stills from the time. A few historical details are frustratingly sketchy, and intense thought it was, in the end I wasn't quite as emotionally overwhelmed as I expected. But overall one of the more accessible and unique holocaust documentaries. I'd imagine it's intimate 1st person narratives would help make these nightmare stories more 'real' for students, making this an invaluable teaching tool.
