As Seen Through These Eyes

2008 NR

Renowned poet Maya Angelou narrates this harrowing documentary from Hilary Helstein that explores the horrors of the holocaust through the perspective of the artists and musicians who lived under the rule of the Third Reich. Though Hitler and the Nazis worked diligently to suppress any artistic expression within the camps and ghettos, many of their captives refused to be silenced, using their creativity to combat the oppression they endured.
