Yehuda Lerner: It was a simple fact: If we didn't act, we'd be killed like all the Jews before us. So it was this reality that forced us to act like this.

Wake me when its over! I haven't seen a doc this bad since i was forced to watch SHERMANS MARCH!

I understand how important it is to tell this story, but nothing can make up for how boring the execution of this film is. At one point its a 45 min. head shot of the main character who is telling the story. The man constantly restates himself to the point where you the audience member find yourself wishing for a bullet in the head to stop the agony. You would think that with the large amount of film that was shot by the German army during the Third ritch that director Claude Lanzmann could have made this film more visually appealing and interesting than the boring monologue that we are left with.
