Critic Reviews for There Was Once...

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (4)

  • "There Was Once ...may feel like sober, do-gooder public television, but it has integrity, recording one specific town's slice of living history. Simple as that, it's a worthy document.

    September 22, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Much in this wholly absorbing and poignant documentary is familiar from numerous previous Holocaust accounts, but Mago and her quiet sense of moral obligation provides a fresh perspective.

    September 22, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A vitally personal version of a story often told in anonymous terms.

  • Starts out like a teacher's history lesson about a vanished past, but turns into a detective story as memories collide, link to witnesses, and a nightmare starts to repeat.
