Storyline

This documentary blends personal accounts of what happened before, during and after WWII. One testimony tells of a sister sending tear-stained letters from the prison camp, while another survivor tells the story of how his father traded portions of the family's food that was being saved for the liberation march, a few slices of bread, for a Jewish prayer book in order to perform a Passover sedar and for Sabbath. Woven together with survivor testimonies, archival footage, original music, source music and survivors' personal photographs and artifacts, the documentary will show the richness of life before the war, the rise and fall of Nazi power, the liberation of the camps and life now, 50 years later, all as seen through the eyes of those who survived.

A Touching and Very Emotional Documentary About One of the Greatest Cruelties of Mankind
10 October 2003 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This documentary is indeed a very touching and emotional testimony of survivors of the holocaust. It is unthinkable and a shame how could persons, like you and me, be treated like the Jews were along that period. I felt so sorry for those old men and women: in 1940, they were children, like my son or my daughter. The noble intention of the foundation that sponsored this film is to keep alive, as a memorial, one of the greatest cruelties of mankind as a kind of advice for the world. Unfortunately, other crimes and massacres against the humankind, like the Chinese in Nankin, Hiroshima, Nakasaki, Bosnia, and Iraq have not the chance to present an equivalent testemony. Further, unfortunately, the leaders of many nations do not pay attention on this type of example. The conflict between Israel and Palestine is a good example how the governments do not learn with those who suffers the consequence of their acts. My vote is eight.
