informative and eye opening
22 September 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

In 1997 Munich, the exhibit "War of Extermination - Crimes of German Armed Forces 1941-44" opened to controversy and opposition from the far-right. The main bone of contention is how involved were the regular Army soldiers. The exhibit is closed after some photos were found to be wrongly attributed to German atrocities. It would reopen years later as the holocaust is shown to be more than a top down directive.

The start is pretty basic with a lot of arguing with the man-on-the-street. It's a he-says-he-says debate. The movie could probably go into more details on the false photos discovery. This documentary digs a little deeper into the massacres and finds some eye-opening information. A single movie is probably too short to fully examine the totality of the crimes. It does get a bit mind-numbing as the atrocities pile up.
