The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

At about 5 minutes, a group of mentally handicapped young people are told to undress. Nothing is seen during the initial undressing. Soon after a girl tries to enter the room with a folder and a man says give it to me, but she refuses so he gives up. When she walks into the room, she is seen looking up and holding the folder in front of her. Soon after she drops the folder and her very small breasts can be seen very briefly before covering herself. Because she covers herself so quickly, too much detail may be avoided by not focusing on her chest area, when she drops the folder.

Later in the movie, men are at a extermination camp and are looking through peep holes at families being gassed. We are not shown the events that they are witnessing, so no nudity is seen in this scene.

Compared to most Holocaust movies there is very little violence shown in this movie. People are seen being rounded up, but I do not recall much violence during this process of the movie. A man shoots himself (no blood shown) at a pre-World War II League of Nations assembly

3 mild cuss words.


The movie has 1940s era Germans so yes there is drinking and smoking going on, but not a lot of focus on it. There is one occasion where a man is getting himself a drink and asks a Protestant Christian if he wants a drink and he tells him no.

2/10 - Compared to many other holocaust movies this one was fairly mild.

Innocent families are seen being rounded up.

Men describe in detail what they witnessed during exterminations.

Families are seen being rounded up on to trucks and then later boarding trains heading to camps.

They mention on one occasion that the families were on a train for 4 days and that a number of people including babies and children died on the way.

There is also one scene where we see bodies being thrown into a huge trench that is engulfed with fire. A comment is made that the crematoriums cannot keep up with the number of bodies.
