“God on Trial”

The movie “God on Trial” is based on one of the worst evil moments that humanity has had to encounter, the Holocaust. The movie takes place in a concentration camp were Jews decide to put God on trial. To do so God is accused of breaking his covenant with the Jews as he had done nothing to free them and stop the massacre. To carry the trial the room was divided between the prosecutors, defendants, judge, witnesses and protestant. The prosecutor appealed that God is evil and gave testimonies of innocent children dying while the defendant appealed that I was all for a reason. In the movie Jews are humiliated and dehumanized, which helped to make the final verdict. They found God guilty, but who want a God that suffers?. Even after they found God at fault they continued to pray as their final moments arrived.
