COMMENTS: THIS DRAMATIC WAR TIME BIOGRAPHY HAS THE OVERARCHING THEME OF THE PLANNING OF AND FINAL ASSASSINATION OF A GERMAN OFFICER RESPONSIBLE FOR THE BRUTAL KILLING OF CIVILIANS IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR. IT INCLUDES COMPLEX AND MATURE THEMES THAT REALISTICALLY EXPLORE NAZI OCCUPATION OF CZECHOSLOVAKIA, RESISTANCE TO THIS OCCUPATION, ASSASSINATION PLOTS, SURVIVAL, GENOCIDE, BRUTAL REGIME AND SACRIFICE. THESE THEMES ARE LACED WITH THREAT AND MENACE. THEMES INCLUDE RELATIONSHIPS, PATRIOTISM, TEAMWORK, REVENGE AND SUICIDE, ALL WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF OCCUPIED CZECHOSLOVAKIA DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR. ALTHOUGH SET IN HISTORICAL CONTEXT AND HAVE EDUCATIONAL MERIT, THE OVERALL IMPACT OF THESE THEMES ARE LIKELY TO HARM, UPSET AND CAUSE DISTRESS TO VIEWERS BELOW THE AGE OF 16 YEARS WHO ARE NOT YET COGNITIVELY DEVELOPED TO WITHSTAND THE OVERALL CONTEXT.
