  • mpho3's rating of the film Forgiving Dr. Mengele

    "This uneven but riveting documentary chronicles Kor's journey to a kind of grace little understood (or appreciated) by many fellow Jews and survivors. ... Kor sees [forgiveness] as a way of detaching from a perpetrator's power, and healing, rather than an excuse or a pardon. Meanwhile, [her] own capacity to forgive is challenged by the current state of affairs in the Middle East." Melissa Levine, Village Voice 3.5
