Best holocaust film- but could be disturbing for some
The Holocaust is inherently disturbing, so really any film that deals with it well will be challenging and disturbing and extremely violent. But I also want my children to understand this history so I want them to see this. I think it all comes down to the individual child. My daughter, who is fourteen, left the room. My son, who is twelve, found it engrossing and had a lot to say about it, Schindler's List might serve better as a general briefing, and has a wider overview, but this film really drops you in the middle of it. Most of the violence, corpses, blurry or offscreen, but there is plenty here to disturb a kid with strong imagination.
As I said, it all depends on the child but, if you want to talk about the Holocaust, this is an exceptional film.
