Survivors Tell of Nazi Horrors
15 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When you mention the Holocaust, people tend to remember the death camps, like Auschwitz. Some even remember the ghettos in Lodz and Warsaw, Poland. Very few seem to recall the mass executions that occurred during the German invasion of Russia, like in Babi Yar.

This documentary series lays out the gruesome details from eyewitness accounts of the atrocities committed in the name of Nazi Germany. In many instances, the local police, or politsai, were the perpetrators, operating under orders from the Eitsanzgruppen-SS. There were countless men, women and children killed, burned and/or buried in mass graves, some open pits on the edge of town. This is the oft-forgotten early horror of the Jewish Holocaust.

In "Children from the Abyss" (my favorite of the 5-part series), survivors who were aged 5 – 14 during the 1941 Holocaust in Russia, tell their harrowing stories of their escape from mass execution and resistance. Some of them fought as partisans against the Nazis. All of them are emotionally scarred from watching their parents shot and their siblings brutally murdered, then piled into mass graves.

I was moved to tears by several of the eyewitness accounts, especially those of the men who, at times, could not speak of the atrocities they witnessed.
