A Life Apart Movie Review

Movie Review: Shoah
November 25, 2014
Author: Matt Sieger

Shoah may be the most important historical film that no one has seen. While “no one” is an exaggeration, this iconic 1985 documentary about the Holocaust has not been widely viewed.

Although the Criterion Collection has recently made it available on DVD, it is now available for the first time online at the SundanceNow Doc Club.*

April 27, 2011
Author: Rich Robinson


A friend’s post on Facebook alerted me to an article which appeared April 22 on The Wall Street Journal’s web site and has since been reposted or commented upon on numerous other sites.

Haman, Hitler, and Now Hussein: Another Holocaust?
January 1, 1992

Another Holocaust? A new twist on the old, twisted final solution? We have barely been able to accept the enormity of the destruction of much of European Jewry. One third of all Jews living before mid-century are gone—one million of them children. Now we live in a world where far more destructive and deadly weapons […]
