Some statements here speak of the harshness they viewed. Understand that any film cannot truly display the horrors of this part of Hitler's war against mankind. This one was certainly close, and left me deeply saddened. My Army vet dad always told me war is hell. This part of it especially.

Joseph Mengele has been well documented in print. The film Boys from Brazil speaks to this & Gregory Peck play the wicked, despicable doctor. Nearly ruined my affection for Peck.

After watching this movie, I realized why there were not a lot of survivors to tell what happened. Yet, the truth has been told and the facts can not be denied. This hellish place was designed as a killing machine. It states that one of them was tried and executed. Not enough were brought to trial. This is the first movie about the holocaust that mentioned anything about Joseph Mengele. His acts of horror included a strange assortment of human experiments. How could anyone claim that someone should be allowed to continue with these types of violations against humanity! I think we should all be wary of the medical consent forms we sign and protect our daughters from the 'advancement of their medical technology'.

Absolutely gut-wrenching from start to finish, even more so because it is based on a true story. So many Holocaust films, and this is one of the good ones. A must-see, although it is very difficult to watch.

Jews who were rewarded for helping to kill other Jews, revolted when scheduled to die themselves. Claustrophobically filmed to trap the viewer inside the death facility.
Graphically brutal.

Very gruesome movie due to the subject of the movie.

How could the civilized world get be so viciously heinous???

This fact-based film is very gruesome to WATCH & Hard to believe how the "civilized" human beast is far more massive, dangerous & deadly, than ALL natural disasters & wild animals combined.
