5.0 out of 5 stars Pivotal series, 28 April 2009
This review is from: Holocaust [DVD] [1978] (DVD)
With all today's sophisticated films and series about the holocaust it's hard not to notice this series is full of cliches, historically innacurate, implausible, and very dated. If you took it at face value compared to something like Schindler's List or the Pianist, then you may not rate it highly. Nevertheless rewind back to 1978 and this was the first serious attempt to educate the mainstream about the horrors of the extermination of the jews even if it feels at times more like a soap opera than serious drama. As such it should be judged as pioneering; as a kid I sat enthralled when it ran on TV and gave me my first exposure to the names of the Wawsaw Ghetto, Heydrich, Sobibot and Treblinka. Enjoy a slice of media history, don't judge it too harsly by current standards, and go and learn more about the events it describes ! Truly pivotal.
