Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this documentary follows how students in a small town study the Holocaust in a unique way, but it doesn't provide too many potentially disturbing or graphic details about the atrocities committed during the Holocaust. Because of that, this is an excellent way to introduce the Holocaust to younger viewers. It teaches about tolerance and diversity and offers many valuable perspectives on how important it is to learn about other cultures, history, and past crimes against humanity.
Some upsetting descriptions of what happened to Jews in Europe during the Holocaust. Some survivor stories may be emotional to watch.
A teacher refers to "racial" jokes and slurs but never says them outright.
The documentary is full of positive messages for kids. Among the most important lessons in the movie: stereotypes lead to prejudice which can eventually lead to genocide; it's important to learn about people/cultures that are different than your own; just because you grew up with prejudice doesn't mean it's acceptable.
