2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Nathan Andersen on April 3 2010
Format: DVD
Several reviewers have already spoken of the powerful impact of this film as a document of the terrible atrocities of the Holocaust. What is perhaps most remarkable about this film (and that most reviews here have not remarked upon) is that it does not aim to reconstruct a past that is impossible to imagine, but to document the traces this past has left behind for the present, and to suggest that this unimaginable past is nevertheless not so far off. However difficult it may be to imagine being involved in such events (whether as victim or perpetrator) it is nevertheless true that those who were involved are not so very different than ourselves.

In other words, this is not just a straightforward documentary depicting the horrors of the Holocaust. It does that and does so in a way that is very powerful. But what makes the film distinctive is the way in which it raises questions, most insistently the question whether such horrors might be repeated. The film's major contention is that it is very easy to think that events like the Holocaust could never happen again -- that they are singular events and that the people who perpetrated them are monsters, unlike "us" -- but that this perception is a mistake. Many of the individuals involved in the horrible atrocities of the Holocaust were quite ordinary folk who loved their families. The point is that even your next door neighbor or anyone, under the right pressures, in situations where those they harmed had been dehumanized, could potentially also do such things.

The events at Abu Ghraib (and other contemporary atrocities) should remind that people we would otherwise think of as decent, upstanding, citizens are capable of horrible and repulsive actions.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Erin on May 17 2004
Format: VHS Tape
This was a great documentary. I will never forget the images that were shown in this documentary. The style the director used with the archive was great; I felt a huge amount of sadness for the lives lost while watching the present day archive. The technique and style of how he put everything together kept my eyes glued to the television the entire time. The reality of what happened at those camps was so gruesome that it made me want to cry.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Nowhere Man on July 8 2003
Format: DVD
Alain Resnais's short, lasting a mere 31 minutes, is justifably famous as the first film to explore the Holocaust after the Second World War (it was released in 1955). More than just a depiction of the events, the film primarily concerned with the filmmaker's inability to convey the historical reality of the event. The colorful scenes Resnais shot of the abandoned camps are contrasted with horrific black-and-white images of Nazi brutality - decapitated skulls gathered in a bucket, a mountain of womens' hair, the living skeletons of the newly-liberated camps - and Resnais asks himself (and us): how can we possibly comprehend, in the safety of being a spectator, the immeasurable inhumanity and suffering of this event? What would it profit us or history as a whole even if we could? Would it really prevent human atrocities from recurring?
The film is best seen as a philosophical exploration rather than a history lesson - indeed, if you don't know at least the key events of the Nazi Regime, you'll find Resnais' elisions confusing. It is still a potent and unsettling film and, within its mere 31 minutes, opened up questions about artistic responsibility and representation that persist today about the Holocaust and other filmed depictions of human atrocities.

Very VERY short but definitely worth it. All non-fiction which is graphic as it is raw footage from the liberation at the camps. If you cannot handle images and videos of such things then this do use tray is not for you.

This is a film about the Holocaust. It is a nightmare of a summary. Don't watch this unless you know something about the Holocaust. Even if you do, there are some scenes that I have never seen before and they are terrible in their starkness. You cannot be left uneffected by this film. I would have given it 5 stars except for the music and the fact that 5 stars means that I loved it. Love and this film just do not go together.

I was in a Holocaust literature class in college this past semester, and this film was shown. It was so powerful and moving. I will never forget the piles of hair or the bodies being shoveled into large pits by bulldozers.

Let me start by saying that this documentary will have an effect on the viewer. I would not recommend it to young children or those that are hyper-sensitive to photos of the results of atrocities. There are a number of photos that are a bit shocking to see. For someone who is not familiar with the Holocaust, this film will be an eye opener.
However, it's not the documentary that my father remembers. I am wondering if there is a different version of the documentary out there? From conversations with my father, this film - in comparison to the one he viewed - almost sugar coats the camps and what happened in them, using film shot by the S.S. guards that almost seems innocuous in comparison to reality. The version my father remembers contains more S.S. film clips, including one of a train coming into the station, and continuing through the entire sorting process, up to and into the gas chambers. I am interested in locating this film in order to further my own studies of this horrible period in our history.
My father saw a version that was in German, not French. Perhaps someone out there can help me locate the other version, if it exists?
