YMMV: Holocaust
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Aside from James Woods, Meryl Streep, and Michael Moriarty; there is Rosemary Harris (the future Aunt May Parker)and Blanche Baker, the future sister of Molly Ringwald.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Dorf crosses this when he has Karl tortured.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Meryl Streep, James Woods, and Michael Moriarty are the main stars of the mini-series, with Streep in particular filming the mini-series as the project she did before doing Kramer Vs Kramer, which launched her career.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: The series was criticized when it was first announced and many critics were appalled at the thought of a TV network doing a mini-series about the Holocaust. The producers countered by saying that this was something that should be told to the public, because of the fact that the sheer horror of the holocaust was such that we can not forget it so that we can ensure it never happens again...
