Audience Reviews for Gray Matter


Wow, this is one of the many stories from the Nazi era that seem to be untold. The fact that they kept these brains in jars for so long is hard to believe. And the torture that these kids had to go through with until they finally died, just for what they thought was science is just awful. If you want to hear a story from the Nazi era, I would recommend this documentary. Its only about an hour long so I think its well worth it.
