Disturbing but accurate depiction of history ... Good movie but a hard watch !!!
Excellent, a must watch.

Very good movie ...
Well of course children can distinguish different colors... my statement was a kind of metaphor. You can replace "see" with the word "judge" to make the statement a little more literal if that helps you to understand the meaning.
@AdmiralAdama " They do not see race, ethnicity, religion or color when they look at somebody."
I just want to say, Although I do agree with you, When my brother was younger aged 7 and whilst stood next to an African-British man, He spoke with a curious voice; "Excuse me, Why are you black?"
Curiosity is wonderful. (Which is what I think led the German boy to the concentration camp in the first place.)
A very sad but very good movie. the holocaust told from the perspective of an 8 year old German boy. I think it would be impossible for any child that young to comprehend exactly what was going on in their own backyard during that time. The world would be a much better place if people were as accepting as children. They do not see race, ethnicity, religion or color when they look at somebody. The content of a persons character is the only thing that a child judges. If the kid down the street is nice and fun to play with it does not matter whether he is black, white, catholic, Chinese or Muslim. The two will become friends.
I'm a 16 year old boy, and I cried. 10/10
Ending an anti-semitic comment with a smiley face, whether you truly believe what you wrote or are trolling doesn't make you funny or witty. Indeed, it only highlights your hatred and ignorance about the facts of a horrific period in history. Comments like yours make me sad for people who believe as you appear to and concerned for all of us. When anyone makes light of the Holocaust and treats it as a joke, even worse, as a fictional event, humankind is just one step closer to repeating such events and/or supporting attempts to eliminate entire groups of people based on religion, race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender, etc. Shame. As far as the movie goes, I've seen it a few times and have found it heart wrenching each time. I encourage others to view this movie as it is very well done--next to Schindler's List and La vita è bella (Life is Beautiful), this is (imo) one of the most well done movies about the Holocaust.
