Don't let your political bias color your opinion about this film.
7 August 2014 | by jxc-131-460850See all my reviews

I didn't realize that there were so many anti-Jewish people on IMDb who could not get passed the fact that the victim was Jewish. I would feel badly toward any type of victim out there, Arab, Jewish, Black, Asian, or even White.

I agree with the person who wrote that people were judging the film on its merit without even watching it. I thought that it was very well acted. It managed to be suspenseful even to people who knew the outcome of the events, which is a difficult feat.

If you have a chance see this film which will give you a slice of history.
