    A much needed piece/documentary, especially with Iranian leaders denying the Holocaust. I'll be searcing my Dish Network guide for the actual show date.

    This is amazing stuff, like sheer poetry, and so beautifully done by non-Jews who feel captivated by the STORY: all these decades later, one man feels compelled to speak up for the millions of murdered civilians and gives no rest to the last surviving murderers. Like an epic saga of which we are know able to witness the very final chapter, the drama being that survivors and perpetrators alike can STILL be found, though not for long. Efraim Zuroff doesn't want revenge or violence, he just wants them to face the most gentle justice of the courtroom. On top of that Zuroff has enormous charisma and a New York sense of humor that makes this compelling viewing. Please can you announce WHEN this will be shown??

    What's especially striking here is the profound sense of justice that is displayed by Efraim Zuroff. I find it remarkable that an individual-despite such tremendous obstacles and facing governmental bureaucracy-would not forsake the ideals of justice and virtue for so many years. This work is most especially imperative today, perhaps more than ever: Juxtaposed with the escapees who are aging comfortably in their far-away villas, we are losing Holocaust survivors due to mortality, at a terrifying rate. The threat of Holocaust distortion and denial has never been as serious as it is today-which makes awareness of these issues all the more crucial and central to confront.

    When will this finally be aired by CNN? My friends and peers are all anxious for the release of this documentary!
