Traumafession:: Carl M. on Judgment at Nuremberg

March 2nd, 2015 by unkle lancifer · 6 Comments

Forget the horror movies. What scar(r)ed me the most when I was but 8 years old was seeing “Judgment At Nuremberg” and learning about something called “The Holocaust” for the very first time! It was all I could think about for weeks!!

    Thanks Carl M.! I know what you mean. My first knowledge of the holocaust was when the miniseries HOLOCAUST aired in 1978 and it was on the cover of TV GUIDE. Another real life horror that made a big impression on me as a kid was the Guyana Tragedy. I remember when that was on the cover of every newspaper and magazine (1978 again). I can’t believe I still have not done a traumafession about that. Truth is, horror movies don’t even come close when compared to what people are capable of in the real world.

    Uncle Lancifer beat me to it! I was kindertraumatized by the mini-series The Holocaust as well! Your point hits home–fact is often scarier than fiction.

    OMG I’m so glad that Holocaust traumas are allowed. I’ve been thinking of sending in a Traumafession about the movie NIGHTMARE: THE IMMIGRATION OF JOACHIM AND RACHEL, which they made us watch in Hebrew school. But I thought that it might be tasteless. In fact, I am going to whip up a Hebrew School Trauma Double Feature, and also talk about the time that they made us watch the Irvin Kershner TV movie RAID ON ENTEBBE, about an American plane that was highjacked to Uganda in the 1970s. I’ve been afraid to fly ever since. All of this happened in around fifth grade.

    Excuse me, I *Israeli* plane, not American.

    I didn’t see that but I did see the 1978 “Holocaust” miniseries…even though I was (and am) a WWII history buff that scared me to death. I think what was really frightening was the fact that IT REALLY HAPPENED.
