the Finest Documentary, 11 July 2005
From the opening interviews right through to the train dissapearing into the distance at the end - this Documentary is the finest ever filmed. It brings together survivors and perpetrators and shows us moving images of the Camps in their present state (1985 - the time of the original release)
Mr Lanzmann is an unrelenting unstoppable interviewer.
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.
