This movie was made in 2008. It's hard to watch. Painful, in fact, if you're the sort to put yourself in the place of the action, and imagine the terror the prisoners felt, and the horrors they faced. I don't know how anyone who has the slightest idea of the Holocaust and what happened there could not.
Here's a summary of the movie:
This movie is a 2008 television play which is about Jewish prisoners in Auschwitz placing God on trial for abandoning them and letting them die and blindly allowing the Nazi's to kill millions of innocent people. Please respect all of those who died in events such as the Holocaust.
If you cannot watch the whole film - whether because of the time commitment (1hr 25 min), or because of the subject matter (I had to stop several times to catch my breath and return to present day) - here's a powerful scene which takes place before the prisoners announce the verdict - one man stands up to offer a final thought. This is just about ten minutes, and the part I'd like to focus on for this discussion.
What do you think of this man's assessment of God's treatment of his "chosen people" - or of humankind in general?
