This is a highly enlightening series. If you only watch one documentary about WWII, it should be this one. "What greater purpose can history have than to try and lead people toward a possible understanding of how this crime could ever have happened? Without an understanding of how it happened, you can't begin to look around the world and think why it might happen again."
