Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Varian's War" is a very worthwhile story, but not as gritty and violent as other Holocaust dramas, so those who want to study the aspects of war heroes during this time should be much obliged to watch this stirring TV movie with the entire family. The only drawback is that it might be too boring [...]
