    I make an effort to watch every movie about The Shoah. This is the first time I can remember picking one apart. For my money, I'll take Winds of War/War and Remembrance over this any day.

    A Must-Watch

    For a fictional account, it is very well written and acted. WARNING: Do NOT watch this miniseries before bedtime. I made that mistake; each time I closed my eyes, I saw SS uniforms.

    &quot Story of Hope in a Time of Despair&quot

    &quot Holocaust&quot is a sweeping epic, intertwining the stories of two German families-- the prominent Jewish Weiss family who's fate becomes inextricably intertwined with the lower class Dorf family, the latter who's patriarch becomes a reluctant high-ranking officer in the Nazi Party-- from the last Golden years of the thirties to the end of the horrific World War II. This tumultuous miniseries boldly demonstrates the extreme good and evil humans are capable of. It shows how &quot good&quot people- like Erik Dorf- can come to commit atrocities against other humans, and on the other hand, show how the Jewish people- despite being stripped of all remnants of their humanity- struggle to hold on to their sanity and remember the fact that they are human. This brilliant miniseries, which ranks right up their with &quot Roots&quot and &quot Angels in America&quot presents a heart-wrenching portrait of their struggle.
