Artists & children in concentration camps
29 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

Several survivors of the vernichtigungslager Auswitz Birkenau are portrait telling their stories of how they managed to escape the gas chambers. The stories are accompanied by the drawings made by camp survivors.

Every story about the Holocaust is very moving and this is as well heartbreaking as freightning. Especially Karl Stojka is amazing.

The only criticism i have on this is that i have no idea who ever thought that Maya Angelou should narrate this documentary. She is obviously reading it and her nasal voice gets so irritating. Stories like these deserve a neutral voice to keep the owners of the story the focal point and not the narrator.
