Did You Know?


When Mac is discussing the human-skin lampshades of Buchenwald, he says that they were made from the tattooed skin of Jews. Most Jews do not have tattoos because of a Biblical prohibition against them. Most of the tattoos for the Buchenwald lampshades instead came from the skin of Gypsies, also imprisoned in the camps with the Jews. See more »

Of all the TV shows/episodes where the subject was of the Holocaust...this was the most moving one.
2 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have just viewed this episode, on a clean, rain refreshed Saturday morning, and am sitting here thanking God for people like Gary Sinese, his writers and producers who go against popular opinion and practice to put quality life's learning lessons and history on prime time TV.

I first heard of the Holocaust as a junior in high school history class (1967-68). Our teacher showed a film of news clips make in the camps. I was absolutely horrified that one person could do such evil against another. Being raised in the Southern U.S. and in a Baptist church, I was taught that the Jewish people were God's chosen, and that we should always honor, respect and stand by them. I could not understand how the God I knew could let all this happen to his chosen people.

Over the past 40 some years, more of the horrors of war have been in the public eye with the modern medium of TV. We now all know that the Holocaust was real, it was not something made up by the Jewish people, media or whomever as a lot of people used to make out like it was. When Schindler's List came out, another generation learned about these horrors, and hopefully will not forget the lesson taught in this film.

This episode of CSI:NY is the best representation of what "all the fuss" is about when it comes to "never forget". Thank you all for such a wonderfully written and acted episode. Ed Asner played his part brilliantly!!!, and again, we are taught or reminded, NEVER FORGET!
