NOMINATION: BEST FACTUAL PROGRAM, BEST FACTUAL SERIES BAFTA Awards (1975)
Narrated by Sir Laurence Olivier, this documentary remains one of the best comprehensive overviews of the Holocaust and is an excellent tool for teacher training.
Organized chronologically from the exposition of the "master race" theory in the early 1930s, through the persecution, ghettoization, deportation and mass murder of European Jewry, this film is so painfully brutal and explicit that it is recommended for mature audiences only.
