Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The dialogue and narration are excellent. The description of the process is suitably grim and realistic. We learn that the Nazi’s would have been just as nasty if Hitler had excluded the Jews from his final solution and simply focused on Russians and gypsies.

Con: There’s almost zero speculative content. Except for the last few paragraphs, this could be a standard World War II story.
