*I have seen this movie a few times…it’s been a while. I was flipping the channels tonight…it was on one of the movie channels. I said to myself, eh only a few moments, I will watch it for. My dd who is 13…sat down with me…my husband was working, she said…I’ll watch this with you mom.
So, we watched it. My dd was so saddened, so shocked…to watch the expression on a young girl’s face watching the scenes where the women and men were being ripped apart from their children…the scene when the women were taken into the showers, but they thought it was the gas chamber…the scene (and this pained me tonight, greatly) when the men and women were asked to strip down and run through the courtyard while the doctors inspected who would be retained to work, and who would I imagine, be sent to the gas chambers.
I cried and cried. I grew up with many jewish families…in NJ. Also, Italian families too. I took piano with a woman who was in one of the work camps, I was a young girl, she was around 60, I believe, back in the 80’s. So, she would have been in her 20’s roughly, in the Holocaust. I think everytime I see a documentary or a movie about the Holocaust, I remember all of my jewish friends and that one special lady, who took piano by my teacher so many years ago.
I just can’t believe that this happened. I know this is a very old movie perhaps to post here, but if you have not yet seen this, please find the time to do so. If you have seen it, what did you think?
