Denying It Makes It worse...Atrocity Plain & Simple
11 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

He who is without sin is absent throughout this documentary. Instead, the hand writing is on the wall and it is not pretty. Propaganda is a strong tool and years were spent dehumanizing the Jews so they could be killed like animals with little regret or remorse. However, fighting a war is one thing and murder is another. AND...Let's be clear. How anyone can justify killing the elderly, women and children is beyond discussion. If this group were shooting people and lugging bombs, so be it. If not, one of the worst atrocities of man against man has been committed. It is also very hard for any German citizen to deny what they were seeing, hearing and smelling for death to the Jews and others was blatant and out in the open. When you think you are going to win the war, you can do anything you want. Its losing that makes it all catch up with you. There are still people around today that support this wasn't that bad toning it all down with aggressive denial tactics while explaining it away by saying everyone shown dead or hung was already that way. The people cremated were from Allied forces bombings disposed of after-wards. This very stance convicts the one taking it. This type of denial only keeps the hate alive. For all to move on, there must be repentance which means "change" in the Greek. Be sorry, admit it was orders or bad judgment, regret it and ask for forgiveness and all the controversy will start to diminish. Deny it, and museums, documentaries and sworn statements will continue to point the finger. 40 million people died and that is no happenstance or accident. Ask yourself this. What was the fighting all about? Did the rest of the world want to live under the dictatorship of Hitler Germany? I think not. Excellent educational presentation. Have something tasty to drink. Hold the food until after-wards. No snacks on this either. Pay attention. Oh, and one more very important thing. Those shown murdered...what were they thinking as they entered into their last futile moments of life? Stare at them and...Give them their justice
