Thoughtful, Resonant, Poignant, Unembellished, Absorbing

See it if Tectonic keeps it fresh. Another landmark docudrama from the best. U love museums, libraries, archives. Emotions controlled but intense.

Don't see it if prefer fiction only, or to “do your own research” by scanning 2 wikis, joining a subreddit, & foregoing contact with primary sources Read more

Profound, Relevant, Great acting, Great staging, Great writing

See it if you enjoy docu-dramas and want to learn something new/experience a new perspective regarding the Holocaust.

Don't see it if you do not enjoy docu-dramas (the piece is very cerebral), and/or not in a place to spend 90 minutes exploring the Holocaust.

Profound, Intense, Eye opening, Disturbing, Thought-provoking

See it if Photo album depicts “ordinary” life of Auschwitz staff, including teenage girls. Murder made routine by Nazi belief system. Gut wrenching.

Don't see it if You aren’t up for holocaust non-fiction. Actors play real people and talk to the audience. A little preachy. Read more

Profound, Intelligent, Great acting, Epic, Absorbing

See it if want a show that dives into history, who and when ppl are complicit in war crimes, and how we glue the pieces of the past together.

Don't see it if want a feel-good drama or comedy. This is a dry docudrama and you have to be in the right headspace to appreciate it.
