Filmmaker Amir Bar-Lev follows two Czech Holocaust survivors, Jan Weiner and Arnost Lustig, as they revisit Terezin, a labor camp where Arnost was interned for five years and Jan's mother was murdered.
At first glance, this show is pretty decent. However, it becomes quite apparent that this is just filler time for The Weather Channel to broadcast. The topics are quite worthy and the writing is okay, but the "special effects" (I use the term loosely) are cheesy and much of the content is superficial. Using stock or file footage is commonplace in the industry for this type of show and it is used. But the use of still photos with budget computer-generated animation just cheapen it. If the show were done properly, it would be more in depth and run an hour long. Only problem with that would be that real money would need to be spent to make it a real production. This is a Kmart version of a presentation one would see on Discovery.
