Yet another Holocaust documentary
20 May 2021 | by BachfeuerSee all my reviews

Its highly specialized, niche character keeps this documentary from getting very interesting. .Waffen SS veterans, and women from their same social milieu in their final years are asked to reflect on the Holocaust. Some are admirably straightforward. Others remain in denial. As these are among the very few who came home intact, and got to have long, prosperous lives in the Bundesrepublik, I would have been very interested in the issue of survivor guilt in their lives. What a missed opportunity. Pix and stock footage are presented attractively enough. There is some particularly nice color home movie footage from '39. If films about WWII were validly rank ordered, hardly anyone would ever get around to this one. Not superfluous, but positively not worth buying a theater ticket.
