This Oscar nominated documentary serves not only as a remembrance but a lesson and a warning for the future. It follows the plight of Europe's Jews during the terrifying period from 1933 until the final defeat of the Third Reich in 1945.

Few, if any, could have foreseen how the views of one man would unfold…that man was Adolf Hitler.
