As recorded history, Into the Arms of Strangers, is indispensable. As a piece of documentary filmmaking, it's no more inventive than scads of talking-head missives that appear on cable TV every evening.

Into the Arms of Strangers was produced with the help of the Holocaust Museum in Washington; it is a valuable, if necessarily fragmented, part of that institution's attempt to convey the enormity of what the Nazis did one life at a time.

As well made and meticulously researched as we have come to expect from such pristine educational projects, enhanced with impressive archival footage and stills, heightened by carefully chosen music and sound, and elevated by properly dignified narration.
