Interesting but this has been done so many times
4 July 2017 | by (portsmouth,england) – See all my reviews

It's watchable and instructive at times but honestly I must have seen half a dozen documentaries on the subject of Holocaust humor and the feelings of both the survivors and present-day Jewish comedians.

There's nothing new here at all and just for a change I'd like to see documentaries about the humor of others involved in those events. The SS, for instance, must have made jokes, both at the expense of their victims and probably their superiors too. It would be interesting to hear about those. And what about the Poles? What did they find to laugh about during the war? It's good to hear about Jewish humor but they weren't the only people with a sense of humor in those days.
