Witness: Voices from the Holocaust
reviewed by the Coalition for Quality Children's Media
Some of the earliest recorded
testamonies and rare archival footage provide school-age viewers with a
uniquely personal introduction to he Holocaust. Jews, resistance
fighters, Amrican POWs, children survivors tell stories in their own
words. Adult Juror Comments: An intensive and chilling reminder fo a
cultural disaster to society. Very interesting and challenging,
excellent document for teachers of history. Powerful and touching.
Marvelous editing job. Stimulates inquiry and thought. Humanizes
history. Kid Juror Comments: "I think it presented touchy material in a
positive and informative way." Actual stories adds appeal. "Helped give
a better understanding of the Holocoust." "Was interesting but too
long." "This seems to be happening again in Kosovo."
