An Unusual Depiction of Persecutions In Nazi Germany
21 May 2003 | by (Bewyn, PA. USA) – See all my reviews

Its always the Jew's travail I hear about concerning the Nazi Germany Period, but other GROUPS apparently got treated miserably as well, and this movie deals with one of them.

Pathos, tremendous camera action (black/white & technicolor), superb character acting, excellent thematic development and flow, and perfect music accompaniment.

I will see it again.
