Any detachment that the reader might have felt in reading books on the subject is destroyed as everything comes to life before your eyes. To actually see apparently 'ordinary' human beings who were responsible for such atrocities, speak about these events with such 'matter of fact', carefree abandon makes one's blood run cold.
This footage is all the more real to me, having personally visited most of the concentration camps referred to and having seen at first hand what is being referred to. Nevertheless, this footage will shock even the most hardened viewer & educate the least informed amongst us on the subject. It really is a 'must view' on the Holocaust.
It is quite lengthy, some 9 hours in all & with subtitles, yet this does not diminish from it's veracity and impact. It is such a shame that this production is not required viewing in our schools. We all need to be educated about this period in our not so recent history, before it happens again.
One can never forget the Scenes of The Old Camp worker with his Pointing stick motioning proudly at his Diagram of Treblinka and the Train guard motioning that this would be the end of the line...
Recollections and accounts from guards survivors and civillians make this an incredible , engrossing film.
Shocking, Disturbing - this Film should be shown in every school studying this terrible era of History.
This documentary is Highly reccomended - I beleive it to be the greatest work of its type in the history of the world.
Take one viewing and Im sure you will agree.
Mr Lanzmann should be celebrated for such an incredible acheivement.
