The film is told part documentary style, with the four narrating their stories as ‘re-enactments’ are shown. The format reminded me of those old television show wherein a televiewer would send their stories to be told and there would be dramatic scenes so the tales can be visualized. On the biog screen, it minimizes the drama. Still, I thought these stories were compelling enough to get my attention. For some reason, I am now always fascinated with these WWII stories, perhaps this is because Past couple of years, I have visited all these European cities that have been affected by the war. I sitll for the life of me cannot understand how the Nazis were able to do this, but I take a look at the United States today and basically Trump is trying to do the exact same thing. I liked this film, and I thought it was a fitting tribute to remember Holocaust Remembrance Day,
