Storyline

Rudi and Helena escape from a long procession of Jews being marched into Babi Yar. They are eventually rescued from a hayloft by a group of Jewish partisans. Erik Dorf attends a top-level Nazi conference in which Heydrich gives Hilter's orders of the final solution for all the Jews in Europe. Karl Weiss has been transferred to Theresienstadt concentration camp which the Germans use to display to the Red Cross officials and representatives of neutral countries that Jews are being treated kindly. Karl learns that his fellow artists in the camp are creating propaganda paintings by day while secretly drawing images of the brutal conditions of the camp by night. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

As Erik Dorf is to be driven from the executions, he sees his uncle Kurt and tells him to get in the car. At that point the car has all four doors. As the car is going down the road and the men are talking, the camera angle changes and we see that the two back doors and the front right door are gone. See more »

A fine continuation to the excellent mini-series.
29 September 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

You may want to note that although the show was listed as occurring in four episodes, on the DVDs, they are actually five. So, a tiny portion of the prior episode actually was included in episode three when the show originally aired.

This episode's theme is the liquidation of the Jews. It begins with death squads very inefficiently rounding up Jews on the Eastern Front and killing them. However, Himmler and the other scum who ran the SS demand it be done on a larger scale and more humanely. So, they did experiments with carbon monoxide and the main character featured in this episode is Dorf. In addition, much of the show is about Rudi and his girlfriend--their lives together once they joined the partisans as well as their marriage. While only occupying a tiny portion of the show, Karl is transferred to Theresienstadt and the Dr. and Mrs. Weiss continue their lives in the ghetto.

Once again, this is a brilliant episode of an amazing mini-series. Finely acted and written.
