Whether the movie is true or not, to me is neither here or there, what it did portray is humanity and the will to survive the worst of times. The Jews have persevere the difficultly they faced; none of us have gone through the alienations as these people have. The movie was touching and exhilarating at the same time.

No offense John -kill or be killed, they had to hide or be killed, what part of the movie were you watchting, and quite frankly you are negative in stating cowards, or looking for feed back. But lets keep in mind it is just a movie, you were not there nor was I, you cannot say what you do if it were your mother, daughter son etc. in the same situation
