Storyline

In late 1944, even as they faced imminent defeat, the Nazis expended enormous resources to kill or deport over 425,000 Jews during the "cleansing" of Hungary. This Oscar-winning documentary, executive produced by Steven Spielberg, focuses on the plight of five Hungarian Jews who survived imprisonment in Auschwitz. Though these survivors recount the horrors they witnessed and endured as a result of the Nazis' "Final Solution," their individual triumphs are a testament to hope and humanity.

Quotes

[first lines]
Bill Basch: There is one thing that has troubled me and has troubled the world, that the Germans dedicated man-power and trains and trucks and energy toward the destruction of the Jews to the last day. Had they stopped 6 months before the end of the war and dedicated that energy towards strengthening themselves, they may have carried on the war in London, but it was more important to them to kill the Jew than in winning the war.

perfect companion to Schindler's list
9 October 2012 | by ragingbull_2005See all my reviews

This is the perfect companion to Schindler's list. Produced by Spielberg, this documentary tells about five Hungarian survivors of the death camps of Hungary and Auschwitz. There are also interviews with a Nazi doctor who used to perform experiments on Jewish children, like trying to change the color of their eyes. The scenes are unforgettable. Many new atrocities of the Nazis are brought to light. There are many tear inducing scenes in the documentary. This got the Academy Award for the best documentary of 1998. I highly recommend this for those who are eager to know more about the Holocaust and for those who want to see the extent of evil which man inflicts on another man. 4 out of 5 for this spellbinder.
