Dove Review

Almost every person knows of the terrible crimes that Adolf Hitler committed against the Jewish people. Not many people know of the prejudicial treatment that other countries, especially England, committed against God’s chosen people. “Forgotten Promise,” a two-part documentary program, details the history of a persecuted nation.

In the early 1900s, even the English would not help the Jews return to Palestine. Over many years, the Jews were murdered, tortured, imprisoned, and unjustly treated just because of their faith. This persecution not only took place in Germany, but other countries as well. The stories are heart wrenching. This documentary provides a history lesson that not many have seen. The Jewish people endured cruelty for many years from those around them. Even when they asked for help, the world turned their backs.

Watching this documentary is a very eye-opening experience. It is heartbreaking how cruel people have been to the Jewish people. It tells a story of the politics, policies, mandates, and rulings that were aimed at the Jewish people, but only hindered their freedom. These people were given a “Forsaken Promise.”

Due to scenes of the cruel acts inflicted on the Jews, we give it the Faith Based Seal with caution.
