Missing history?[edit]

Only seen clips of the TV show and the miniseries being talked about. Doesn't the title also trivialize those who died in the camps who were not Jewish. Also got panned for trivializing Jewish tradegy itself. Alexsanderson83 11:17, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

  • I just watched the first episode, and it does cover non-Jewish casualties as well, for example in a scene where you see a group of handicapped people being gassed, and every group that was made victim by the Nazis are mentioned. Funkynusayri 20:28, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

The Term Holocaust[edit]

This term has been used at least since the fifties. Please don't insert undocumented statements like this, saying it began with this mini-series. Rosencomet (talk) 19:24, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

DVD Release[edit]

The TV miniseries is currently available on DVD. It was released not too long ago and it can be purchased on Amazon and several other online outlets. I am going to update the article with the DVD release. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Frschoonover (talkcontribs) 19:24, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

I just added the information on the miniseries' DVD release and the date that it was released. I also changed the article to the present tense rather than the past tense since the miniseries never ceased to exist as a result of the miniseries now made available on DVD.

Starring - James Woods[edit]

The article states The nine-and-a-half hour program starred Meryl Streep, James Woods and Michael Moriarty but James Woods is missing from the infobox on the right. Shouldn't he be added? Thanks (talk) 07:39, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Other airings?[edit]

Anyone have sources about the show? According to the documentary, Imaginary Witness, a groundswell triggered by this miniseries extended the statute of limitations on war crimes in West Germany. Also, I recall having seen the Weiss story, although I know I usually didn't watch miniseries on their first run when I was a tot. (talk) 06:04, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

negative response?[edit]

the lede mentions "it was criticized by some, including noted Holocaust survivor and author Elie Wiesel, who described it as 'untrue and offensive'". but there is no further info about such response in the article. just what was EW's beef with the show?

Per IMDB and other sources, the spelling is "Dorf". I'll see if I can track down how the "Dorff" spelling entered into the article, but it's just not supported by reliable sources. On a tangential note, I suspect that the name "Dorf" was chosen symbolically for it's literal meaning in German to reflect poverty of mind. Rklawton (talk) 01:48, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
