Worse than War
With his first book, Daniel Jonah Goldhagen forced the world to re-think some of its most deeply-held beliefs about the Holocaust, inspiring an unprecedented worldwide discussion and debate. A decade later Goldhagen is convinced that the overall phenomenon of genocide is as poorly understood as the Holocaust had once been.
Worse Than War (based on Goldhagen’s book of the same title) is the first documentary to step back and focus on the general phenomenon of genocide – offering viewers profound insights about its dimensions, its patterns and causes, and its tragic role in politics and human affairs.
Goldhagen travels to nine countries around the world, listening to witnesses, and confronting perpetrators, bringing viewers on an unprecedented journey of insight and analysis. Watch as one of America’s most notable public intellectuals leaves his study and his writing desk for a global journey into the heart of human darkness.
