5.0 out of 5 stars Lest we forget ..., 9 Feb. 2011
By 
This review is from: Night And Fog [DVD] (DVD)
This is a powerful and painful to watch testament of man's inhumanity to man. As the camera follows a path through a derelict and empty Auschwitz you are reminded of what took place here. Combined with the now familiar footage of mass graves of emaciated bodies this film defines what must never happen again.
Yes. Modern audiences are desensitised because they have been over-exposed to cartoonish, dumbed-down violence, but what you see in this film is agonising because it is real. I don't believe we should become so 'desensitised' that we cannot understand what is real anymore.
So much is achieved in the short running time of thirty minutes. You will go back to this film again and think about it for a long time afterwards. It haunts the soul. If you think it is too confronting, then remember that the suffering and death of those many thousands that died in Auschwitz and all the other death camps must never be forgotten.
The intention of this film is not to dehumanise anyone. It speaks for those who suffered and died in such agony and they deserve to have a voice.
