  1. 88
    There have been many documentaries about the Holocaust in recent years, but this one really stands out.
  2. At its slowest, the film has value as a historical document. At its best, the film gives a human face to stories of unimaginable suffering and unexpected triumph.
  3. The dramatic power, though, comes entirely from the eloquence of old people, shot in medium close-up, barely moving as they remember things.
  4. Harris brings into focus a nearly forgotten success story, filling in another blank in the ultimate mosaic of the 20th century's greatest tragedy.
  5. 100
    A marvelous picture and a highly unusual journey in and around the Holocaust.

    Proves there are Holocaust stories still to be told.
  7. 88
    A fitting tribute to these displaced children because it so simply and elegantly personalizes their place in the most horrific chapter of 20th-century history.
  8. A powerful and moving contribution to the cinema of the Holocaust.

    Has moments of profound poignance, though it lacks the overall dramatic impact of "The Long Way Home."
