Should Be Mandatory Viewing in HS History Classes, 18 April 2015
Author: plazaliz from United States

Like most not of the WWII generation I've had an abstract view of the Holocaust and although appropriately horrified, not until I watched this film, which started me on a quest to learn more, did I have even the remotest idea of the horror and sheer insanity that occurred. I would think that most intelligent humans who desire never to have the Holocaust (about 6 million Jews murdered in cold blood) and the annihilation of approx 8 million other citizens repeated, would want this topic discussed ad nauseam until everyone understands not only exactly what happened, but how it happened. Accountability, responsibility must be accepted. Denial heals nothing. This isn't about casting blame for blame's sake, but about understanding the truth for the sake of future generations. Excellent film.
