5.0 out of 5 stars Harrowing, Disturbing,Real., July 3, 2003
By 
This review is from: Holocaust (DVD)
*(If anyone knows when this DVD will be released please say so i would very much like to know)
I have only recently come across this mini-series after renting it from my videostore and only even heard of this when researching more on Meryl Streep after viewing her incredible performnce in "Sophie's Choice".
Admirers of Ms.Streep won't be dissapointed in her performance nor will they with the rest.
Spanning over a decade (1935-1945), "Holocaust" focuses on the Weiss Family of Berlin and all the terror that each individual faces during their darkest days.
The characters are endearing and audiences will easily empathise with the strife they face.
This docu-drama is an accurate and on several occasions, highly disturbing account of man's inhumanity to mankind.
It's won 8 out of 16 emmy awards (1 Emmy which Meryl Streep won) and deserves each one.
I believe that every jewish man and woman should see this film and anyone else who is interested in History's blackest decade.

I think all the people should be required to watch this one, also Sophie's Choice & Schindlers List, either in history class or literature class. None of us can afford to forget!
