Not Easy to Watch, but Essential to Opening Our Eyes and Our Hearts!
Verified purchase
Prisoner in Paradise is not an easy film to watch and yet, I felt compelled to know the stories of great talent that was decimated during WWII. I believe "we" of all peoples need to know this so that we can always remember actual faces and stories of people who are murdered needlessly anywhere.
The beauty of this film is to see the "life spirit" to entertain and share creative gifts no matter the circumstance.
You will be moved and inspired and hopefully awakened to include all these people in your remembrance.

Fantastic

Truly fantastic.

I gave four stars only because the beginning half moved a bit slowly although important and interesting.
The second half of the documentary is truly captivating.

Terezin
Verified purchase
This movie gives an excellent background of the Terezin concentration camp, without getting too graphic. It provides a historical context for understanding the times in Europe and presents a compelling picture of the Jewish experience during the Holocaust.

Nominated for an Oscar, for good reason.

Phenominal film about Terezin, this film features interviews of historic figures and reveals some of the many horrors of the concentration camps and Nazi propaganda. There are moments you will cry and gasp aloud.

Lost of Soul
Verified purchase
The movie really made me understand on how the NAZI during that days, really destroy people's heart and mind. many intelligent and creative minds in those days were raped of their root, and forced to comply with NAZI's idea. this film reflect how a genius mind can be crippled to the lowest level. let us learn from this horror, and never to repeat it anymore.
