Eva Mozes Kor, who survived Josef Mengele's cruel twin experiments in the Auschwitz concentration camp, shocks other Holocaust survivors when she decides to forgive the perpetrators as a way of self-healing.
Just caught this at the Sarasota Film Festival, and all I can say is...wow! One part History Channel Documentary, one part sci-fi/horror film, all mixed with some very heavy questions such as; "Does society have the right to sterilize 'defective' people?" or "Do doctors have the right to deny medical assistance to a 'defective' new born?". It doesn't preach or titillate, it just lays out the history of a pseudo science, eugenics, that was once considered cutting edge at Ivy League colleges, supported by politicians all the way to the White House, and upheld by the Supreme Court. A thought provoking documentary film that will give you something to talk about long after the final credits roll.
