Another Holocaust Movie!
7 June 2007 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

Another Holocaust Movie starring Law & Order Sam Waterston (yes, he can do more) and Mia Farrow as a Danish couple who help and assist Danish Jews to flee the country to Sweden. Of course, everybody knows the history of the holocaust and those few who assisted. In this story, the Christian Kosters help aid the Danish Jews. It's another story about good Christians who helped the Jews in Europe during a dark time in it's history. I don't think the German Nazis and Gestapo in this film is accurately portrayed. Believe me, they were much more vicious. Denmark was one of the few countries that helped their Jews because they didn't have the same anti-Semitism that other countries including Germany, Austria, Poland, Czech, and Russia had at the time according to this film. Denmark should be applauded for it's behavior. I'm not knocking the story but this film was shown to middle school American children. While it's just another Holocaust movie, it's not as good as Schindler's List or others. It was shown because it was not rated but the children could see it because it lacked the viciousness of usual Holocaust films.
