    No dramatic feature has ever come quite this close to the matter-of-fact ugliness of the Nazi crimes.

    Pitiless, bleak and despairing -- The Grey Zone refers to a world where everyone is covered with the gray ash of the dead, and it has been like that for so long they do not even notice anymore.

    With all its flaws, though, The Grey Zone deserves to be respected, and to be seen.

    Gives life and meaning to an event that is little more than a footnote in history books (if that).
