A disturbing remembrance of the past., 9 December 2004
Author: mischarp from Lake Charles, LA., USA

This film, through interviews of survivors and recountings of actions taken by the resistors, paints a dark yet compelling picture of the price one sometimes has to pay for following ones conscience. The most memorable character was the German lawyer and dissident Helmuth James von Moltke. He was as the French say-"Comfortable in his own skin". He had the strength of his convictions to push him to continue to resist despite the potential costs. For this he paid with his life. The other dissenters-Oster, Bonhoeffer, Stauffenberg, and others are dealt with in a compassionate, humane manner, revealing their probable states of mind when they fought to bring down Hitler. Ms. Beller has done a great service to the world in completing this thought provoking film.
