Good summary of arguments against Holocaust deniers
18 July 2001 | by mr_sparkle_76See all my reviews

I just watched this film on PBS, and as always, my mind was boggled by the ability of a nation to perform such atrocities. Almost as bad were the distorted arguments of David Irving. The film took the (correct) slant of being anti-holocaust denier. However, I felt that this slant sometimes got in the way of the educational value of the film. It seemed to be preaching to the choir, as opposed to trying to convince other deniers of their own flawed reasoning. I also felt that the audience would have been better served if we could have seen some of the effects of the trial on the denier movement, if any. Instead, the narrator just summed it up as "and now arguments of holocaust-deniers have no weight."
