Double bill of dramas that explore issues relating to the Holocaust. 'Holocaust' (1978), an award-winning mini-series starring Meryl Streep and James Woods, details the full horrors of Hitler's attempt to destroy the Jewish population of Europe. The series focuses particular attention on the struggles of the Weiss family, which includes Karl (Woods) and Inga (Streep), in Nazi Germany. 'Wallenberg - A Hero's Story' (1985) is based on the life of Raoul Wallenberg, a Swedish diplomat credited with saving the lives of tens of thousands of Jews in World War II. Wallenberg (Richard Chamberlain), an architect and businessman from a wealthy Swedish family, initially underestimates Hitler, like many in Europe, but as the Nazi regime seizes power in Germany and beyond, the Swede becomes increasingly concerned at their barbarity and feels morally obliged to help those at risk.
