Reader: In Darkness reminds us that we can never forget
Michael Atkinson's thoughtful review of In Darkness brought up tough, but important, memories.
We saw "In Darkness" in Telluride last Labor Day weekend. It's a spell-binding tale, beautifully shot and directed, a must-see. Mr. Atkinson, my paternal grandfather and one brother were the only members of their family to survive the Holocaust. Eight years ago, I learned that my great-aunt, uncles and cousins were marched to a forest near their home where they were forced to dig a mass grave and then shot to death. I will never forget.
