"Worse Than War," based on Daniel Jonah Goldhagen's book of the same title, is the first documentary to step back and focus on the general phenomenon of genocide -- offering insights about its dimensions, its patterns and causes, and its tragic role in politics and human affairs. Goldhagen travels, listens to witnesses, and confronts perpetrators in nine countries around the world, bringing viewers on an unprecedented journey of insight and analysis.
