One of the best ever TV miniseries concerning the life and times of the Weiss family who are torn apart during WWII. Excellent work all round with standout contributions from Meryl Streep and an astounding turn from Michael Moriarty as a nice quiet mass-murdering SS officer. Highly recommended.

DVD release re-edits the original 4 part miniseries into 5 parts, presumably to better fit the DVDs.
