Review of I'm Still Here: Real Diaries of Young People Who Lived During the Holocaust
This short documentary tells the stories of some of the younger people who lived and died during the Holocaust through their diaries, also pointing out that Anne Frank was not the only person to personally document the hardships that the Jews faced. Although compelling at times, and most documentaries on the Holocaust are, this is an odd choice of subject for an MTV production. Unfortunately that being the case the people responsible seemingly try to turn it into a music video with music from Moby and the occasional fancy graphic. If their aim was to appeal to younger viewers then I really don't think it was achieved with this film. A much better documentary on this subject would have to be Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport (2000).
