A look into human cruelty and the will to persevere
17 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary spells out the horrors humans are willing to inflict upon their fellow humans at the provocation of others! How neighbor can turn upon neighbor to destroy them is just beyond me. But here we have the living testimony of those who survived this sort of nightmare to tell us about it today.

We should thank Mr. Nicola for his dedication to investigate why, what he discovers deep into a cave, is there. In doing so a heart breaking story comes to light. The misery so many suffered during WW2 should be told everyday to all who embrace the act of war.

If I am not mistake at some point in the movie a statement is made that a priest or police told the townspeople to not help the Jews. Maybe I am wrong, but it is a statement of truth. What has a greater hold on the minds of people than their religion? The people of the Ukraine are mostly Christians. So are the Germans. At this time the Christian church had no problem with the destructive treatment of their fellow religious community members who happen to be Jews. It stands that way today toward whoever the Church deems unworthy of God! If the church had opposed this extermination it would have spoken out against it - but it did not! The Christians went right along with whatever came out of the pulpit.

This movie is as much a statement against the lies of religion that deceive the believers as it is a story of the human will to live. Politics and religion are very happy handmaidens!
