| Not a true story.
Since the other review opened with a quote from E.G. McConnell, I figured I'd open this one with a quote from the very same man, "It's a lie. We were nowhere near these camps when they were liberated." - E. G. McConnell. Most agree that the Holocaust was just awful and most are so very anxious to believe in stories about black heroes during WWII, most will also agree that historical fact is much more important than a sensationalized story..

This movie is fraudulent. So fraudulent, the network (WNET) pulled its name from the credits and the distribution of this film has been "supressed." If you do end up viewing this, KEEP IN MIND, the 761st Tank Battalion DI NOT liberate any camps. I'm sure that they would have.. But they did not and could not..

This film being proved fraudulent did not stop Steven Spielberg from interviewing one of the same liars that is featured in this film, Paul Parks, whose story was not changed over the years.. The only thing Spielberg had changed was what unit Paul Parks was supposedly in.

Bottomline: this is an extremely disrespectful film. Disrespecting the men who ACTUALLY liberated these camps (9th Armored Infantry Battalion of the 6th Armored Division of Patton's 3rd Army) the men, women, and children who Truly suffered, but it especially disrespects those of us who honestly want to learn the truth. Such misinformation and propaganda is harmful for victims and villains alike as the murkier the water, the more unsure are your steps.
