entertainment these days

I have this thing. Anytime there's a Holocaust or WW II related movie or documentary on TV, I can't look away. I always have to watch it.

Tonight's is a cable TV showing of Sarah's Key.

There's just something instantly compelling to me about this period of history. The dehumanizing vastness of the numbers that suffered and died, and then the writer bit in the brain tries to imagine a story for them, to imagine what it was like for this person or that person in one of those black and white photos of prisoners being herded off of one of the trains...

In other bits of time-passing, I've just finished a Clash of Kings.
