This is a very good film, though not exactly ground-breaking. Things are kept interesting through the usual balanced mixture of interviews, stock footage, stills, current locations, and recreations. Ian Holm does a fine job with the narration, too. I wasn't familiar with Theresienstadt before, so that was enlightening.

Should have been much more compelling, but this is hardly the first documentary about the Holocaust. Hell, it's not even the first about Kurt Gerron
