    A Monumental Achievement; Bar None

    This is a documentary that should have been given a Special Nobel Peace Prize from a committee that does not lend itself to film. None of the familiar Holocaust footage is used but, rather, it is a 9-hour film of interviews from every dimension of witnesses who were there; including the neighbors who resided outside of the camps. The only way to describe this film would entail a review of the greatest of length; which, in the end, would bore the reader away from a film that must be seen at least once in everyone's life. It is mandatory history unlike anything put to film.
